Darwin Award nominee

RTÉ News reports:

"Gardaí believe Mr Collopy was showing a friend how to kill someone when he put the gun to his own head without realising there was a round in the breech. […]

"Mr Collopy died in the Mid Western Regional Hospital at 8.30pm last night. […]

"Mr Collopy was well known to gardaí as one of the Keane/Collopy criminal gangs, which has been involved in the ongoing feud with the McCarthy/Dundon gang.

He was a target not just of Limerick gardaí but also of the Criminal Assets Bureau, which seized a house, two cars and a substantial amount of cash from the gang."

A terrible loss to the community, I'm sure. At least his friend can take it that the instructions are reliable. Maybe it's what Limerick's criminal thugs do instead of Tupperware parties.
