This scene was an reenactment of the murder of Martin "The General" Cahill who was shot by members of the Provisional IRA as he sat in his car at the intersection of Oxford Road and Charleston Road in Ranelagh, Dublin on the morning of the 18th August 1994.

Martin Cahill was a career criminal in the Dublin Underworld, he was named in several burglaries and armed robberies throughout the 1970s to the early 1990s.

Cahill started off as a thief at the age of 15 with his older brother; John.

At the age of 16, Cahill had served time in an industrial school for burglary, after his release, Cahill and his older brother continued to commit burglaries in the wealthy areas near he and his wife; Frances' home at Rathmines in Dublin's Southside Area.

Among the burglaries the Cahill Brothers committed, the Brothers stole several confiscated firearms from the Garda Síochána depot.

By the early 1970s, the Brothers joined up with the Dunne Gang based at Dublin's Southside Area of Crumlin and started to commit several armed robberies on security vans and ended on the radar of the Dublin Central Detective Unit.

Fearing forensic science would link Cahill to the armed robberies, on the 6th January 1982, Cahill placed a bomb under the bonnet of the car of the forensic scientist; James O'Donovan at O'Donovan's home in Belgard, South Dublin, O'Donovan survived with minor injuries.

In 1983, Cahill.
