Drogheda gangster Paul Crosby goes away for torching stolen car

Paul Crosby, 24, a key protagonist in the Drogheda feud, pleaded guilty to arson and has been jailed for 54 months. He set fire to a car last year while under garda surveillance. Threats to Crosby's life are such that armed police are required for every court appearance.

Crosby is thought to have a hand in the gruesome murder of Keane Mulready-Woods in January. He was a very close associate of the murdered Robbie Lawlor.
Crosby is considered a key member of the so-called anti-Maguire faction in the feud.
There is no doubt that Crosby is one of the main targets for the Maguire faction, whose leader Owen Maguire was left paralyzed after being shot in July 2018. Crosby ridiculed Maguire with many online insults. At one stage he even goaded Maguire by asking: "Do you want to go for a walk and sort this out?" Crosby claimed he assaulted Maguire's close associate Cornelius Price in a 2018 jailhouse attack.

The court heard that Crosby has 40 previous convictions and had a cocaine addiction.
