A nephew of Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch has pleaded guilty to robbing a Dublin pharmacy.

Ross Hutch (29) made the plea at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court yesterday after he was charged with one count of robbing €200 from Boles Pharmacy in Drumcondra on April 12 this year.

Hutch, of Portland Place, Dublin, appeared before the court wearing a white Adidas T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms. He is currently in custody.

Ross Hutch is a first cousin of Gary Hutch, whose murder in Spain in September 2015 sparked the deadly Hutch/Kinahan feud.

Four of Ross Hutch's relatives have been murdered as part of the feud, including his father, Eddie Hutch Snr (59).

Eddie Snr was gunned down on Poplar Row in February 2016, just days after David Byrne was shot dead in the Regency Hotel bloodbath.

Another cousin, Gareth Hutch (36) was shot dead outside the Avondale House flat complex in the north inner city in May 2016.

Ross Hutch won €33,000 in cash and prizes on RTE's Winning Streak in 2015 for his brother, Edward Hutch Jnr.

He has been previously warned that his life is under threat and has been the victim of a number of assaults.

Target

One of these took place in a bookmakers in summer 2017 when he was attacked by a relative of an Irish sports star.

The relative is believed to be working with the Kinahan cartel.

Defence barrister Emmet Nolan BL, told the court that Hutch's sentence hearing would take about 20 minutes,

Judge Martin Nolan adjourned the matter for sentencing on November 20.
