AN Irish hitman who gunned down Briton Dan Smith was using three passports to travel undetected in the lead up to his arrest.

Police found that Eric ‘lucky’ Wilson was using the identities of three Irish petty criminals when they raided his farm in Coin.

They also uncovered a deadly cache of explosives and grenades, and police are now investigating how he was able to obtain the contraband.

Irish authorities believe Wilson, who shot Smith 11 times, is the most prolific contract killer in the history of Irish gangland crime.

He has been linked with organisations including the IRA.
