The 35-year-old career criminal was blasted to death on Monday night over a suspected drugs-related row in Clondalkin, West Dublin.

He was out on bail for firearm offences.

Now friends of Nugent have set up a Gofundme page to try to raise money for his funeral.

The page, which was set up on Tuesday, has a €1,000 goal.

The Gofundme page, which appears to have been set up by a friend of the family, reads: “On behalf of Darragh's loving girlfriend, children & Family, we've set up this page to see if our community could come together and help raise some costs towards his funeral arrangements. 

“Most will know how this was a sudden shock for us all, his 3 beautiful children, girlfriend & family would like to give him the best send off as they can, any little amount to help towards this cost would be hugely appreciated by them all.

“Let's come together and take a small amount of stress from them.

“Highly thankful to anyone who is willing to help this loving family in their time of need, also if anyone has no bank card to donate a book of condolences will be available if anyone would like to donate this way just contact us, thanks for taking the time to read.”

Residents in his quiet West Dublin estate are still horrified after the dad-of-three was callously shot up to five times.

His killers lay in wait for 40 minutes before opening fire.

Two of the victim's three children, a boy aged three and a nine-year-old girl were inside the house on Wheatfield Avenue at the time.

Nugent, who had not been warned his life was in danger, spent time in prison and was on bail for firearms offences after he was chased by officers last February and caught with a handgun and ammunition.
