There's a guy on twitter @saorsean seems to have the inside scoop as to what is going on

Not on twitter, what's he saying that isn't in the general press?

Another emergency today, Paul Williams is running out of nicknames for Gangsters and this might threaten his livelihood of selling papers.

If storms can have nicknames why not gangsters?

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/dublin-gangland-feud-close-associate-of-hutch-family-shot-dead-1.2658793

Ismail Kadare wrote a book about the Kanun, the ancient Albanian feud code

https://www.bookdepository.com/Broken-April-Ismail-Kadare/9780099449874

It is brutal
http://kenner.kprdsb.ca/FOV1-000585DC/RThompson/The_Kanun.pdf

According to the Code, if a man
is deeply affronted, his family has the right to kill the person who has insulted him. However,
by doing this, the family will become a target for revenge on the part of the victim’s family.
The victim’s closest male relative is obliged to kill the murderer of his family member. The
pattern of reprisal killings thus formed has been passed on for generations of families and has
been manifested up to the present day in Albania, Kosovo, and, partly, in Montenegro. “Blood
is never lost”, states the Kanun2. The perpetrator is entitled to ask through the agency of a
mediator – a well-respected member of the community, for a besa – a vow that no one would
hurt him. Those who have not taken revenge, fall into social disgrace. At public gatherings
they are served coffee or brandy in cups and glasses with a bullet put inside, in order to be
urged to avenge the injury. The Code does not allow the murdering of women or children.
The only place where blood should not be shed is the house of the marked victim. Because of
the ruthlessness of blood feud, most of the houses in Northern Albania look like fortresses
built of stone, with small apertures serving as windows. Even to date many Albanians shut
themselves inside their houses where they remain isolated for life in order to escape from
blood vengeance.

Is this not a bit like Tyrone V Derry, very one sided? Think the Hutch team needs a change of manager.
