The Garda Ombudsman is investigating after a ‘runner’ for mob boss ‘Mr Flashy’ died in a horrific motorbike crash that occurred after a chase with gardai.

Dublin Live has learned that tragic youngster Jordan ‘Romo’ Kennedy, 20, who died following the smash on the Kilshane Road in Finglas on Friday, was a close associate of the mobster known as ‘Mr Flashy.’

And we have also established that the fatal crash, which occurred after 1:20am in the morning, occurred after gardai had been chasing the Yamaha R6 motorbike and a car on the M50, minutes earlier.

It is understood gardai were attempting to stop both vehicles, with Jordan tagging along on the bike in a ‘convoy’ with his other associates, who were in the car.

He then managed to break off from the chase and is thought to have lost control of his bike on the Kilshane Road – and subsequently died in a horrific collision.

In a statement, the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC) confirmed that the case had been referred to them, and it is now investigating the circumstances surrounding the fatal crash.

GSOC received a referral under s. 102 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 from the Garda Síochána following a fatal road traffic collision at approximately 1:37am on 2 April at Kilshane Cross / Kilshane Road.

A motorcycle and a car interacted with the Gardai on the M50 shortly before the motorcycle collision.

The motorcycle driver was fatally injured,” a spokesperson said.

The spokesperson went on to explain that under Section 102 of the Garda Siochana Act, GSOC carries out an “independent investigation of any matter that appears to indicate that the conduct of a member of the Garda Síochána may have resulted in the death of, or serious harm to, a person.”

They added that GSOC deployed a team of investigators to the scene and an examination of the incident continues.

Sources say despite his young age, tragic Jordan Kennedy was known to gardai and was considered a close-associate and ‘runner’ for the gang boss named in the media as ‘Mr Flashy.’

And taking to social media in a rare post, Flashy himself paid tribute to his pal over the Easter weekend.

The once powerful Kinahan cartel mobster is now at the centre of a violent and bitter dispute with associates of a gangster named Shane Fowler – who also died in a motorbike accident in 2018.

And Jordan, whose funeral details have yet to be announced, also had previous run-ins with the law – and was in fact facing sentencing over a previous crash that left a pal with serious injuries.

Jordan was placed on a 12 month probation bond after an incident in which he swerved to avoid a motorist who was taking a right hand turn-off in front of him but he collided with the car, knocking both himself and Stephen Moore, (19) off the bike.

Mr Moore later had to undergo emergency surgery for a blood clot to his brain and was put in an induced coma and had to undergo further surgeries before he was ultimately discharged from hospital two months later.

He was later re-admitted again for a further operation before he spent some time at the National Rehabilitation Hospital.

Sergeant Robbie Byrne acknowledged that Mr Moore has made a “remarkable recovery” in terms of what was expected from the injuries sustained but he said, having met the teenager recently, “there is still evidence of a brain injury”.

Kennedy then pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to careless driving causing serious injury on July 8, 2018.

Further charges of having no license or insurance were taken into account because he had no previous convictions.

Sgt Byrne agreed with Ronan Kennedy SC, defending, that Stephen Moore and his client were best friends and remain so.

At the time, Judge Sheahan placed Kennedy on a 12 month probation bond during which time she said he must remain under the supervision of the Probation Service, stay away from those peers identified in the probation report, continue with his apprenticeship and keep a clean record.

“Stop putting your mother through this. She doesn’t deserve it,” Judge Sheahan said before she thanked Kennedy’s mother for coming to court.

Kennedy was remanded on continuing bail and was due to be sentenced over the crash in July of this year before his untimely death.
