GODFATHER Christy ‘Dapper Don’ Kinahan’s lethal mob are as dangerous as Islamic State terrorists, Dublin’s Lord Mayor has warned.
Just over a week after London was targeted in a horrific attack, Brendan Carr also branded the kingpin’s cartel — currently involved in a deadly feud with Gerry ‘The Monk’ Hutch’s gang — as “evil bastards”.
But despite the Labour Party rep comparing Kinahan’s henchmen to the world’s most hated terrorist group, the trade union official has offered to mediate in the gangland dispute that has claimed 12 lives.
In an exclusive interview, the Labour Party councillor told how the Kinahan Organised Crime Gang (KOGC) had unleashed mayhem here and across Europe.
Dad-of-one Carr said: “The terrorist is the same as the drug dealer.
“The whole idea of killing people is to terrorise a community and this is what the Kinahan gang have been doing.
“When someone is killed by a terrorist, there is widespread condemnation — and rightly so.
“But when a criminal kills an innocent person we accept it as a way of life — but the result is exactly the same.
“What has been happening here is terrorism but because they don’t have a name or aren’t doing it for a religious cause or political we seem to think it’s only murder.
“ISIS and the Kinahan cartel are both targeting innocent people — they’re using the same tactics and they’re both letting society know that they can kill whoever they want.
“Thankfully the gardai have had a hand on the feud and have saved lives, but the threat from these evil bastards is still out there.”
As part of his offer of mediation in Ireland’s deadliest gangland war, Dublin’s Lord Mayor has vowed to travel anywhere in the world to meet with the Dapper Don, his son Daniel Kinahan, The Monk or other leading figures from either faction.
Carr added: “These drugs gangs are destroying our city, destroying the image of Ireland and they’ve contributed nothing but mayhem and carnage.
“I hope the gardai are in a position they can put an end to this futile feud fairly soon but I have a background in negotiation and maybe this experience can help in terms of bringing families together.
“I don’t know where (Christy) Kinahan is and there is an international dimension to the feud. But this wouldn’t stop me going anywhere to plead with these people to end the cycle of violence… I’d do whatever I could, I would go anywhere, speak to anyone regardless of who they are in a bid to end the bloodshed.
“As civic leaders, we all have a responsibility to try and end this feud.
“It’s not going to end the drugs problem, but I would certainly be able to speak to anyone, no matter where they are in the world, because we don’t want anymore innocent blood being spilt.
“People in Dublin are sickened to the core by this murderous feud… They don’t want to be in a situation where innocent people could be caught up again.
“The First Citizen has a responsibility, not just a duty, to try and bring this to an end.”
As part of his exclusive interview with the Irish Sun, the Lord Mayor also told of his pain over the murder of innocent Dublin City Council worker Trevor O’Neill, 41.
The dad-of-three was blasted in the back as he walked with his partner and their three kids in Majorca, Spain, last August.
He was targeted as he walked close to a member of the Hutch family who was staying in the same resort.
Carr also hit out at the contract killer who blasted innocent dad Martin O’Rourke, 24, in Sheriff Street, Dublin, on April 14, 2016 and the murder of Noel ‘Duck Egg’ Kirwan, 61, also in the capital, three days before Christmas.
And he prays the innocent families caught up in the mayhem receive justice.
He added: “The murder of Trevor was the darkest day I’ve ever had as a representative.
“An innocent guy working on behalf of the people of Dublin, liked by everyone, respected by the public and his colleagues going on a holiday and has lost his life through a cowardly and evil action.
“We often hear people say, ‘Let them go off and kill each other.’ But the reality is if this happens then innocent people are going to get caught up in this madness.
“My heart just goes out to the families of people like Martin O’Rourke . . . and all the other innocents . . . Anyone who thinks they’re just killing each other is wrong — they’ve waged war on all of us.
“Having to go to Trevor’s funeral, meeting his family, meeting his kids was just awful. It was heartbreaking to see them all in such pain and it was just so wrong.”
Thankfully the gardai have had a hand on the feud and have saved lives, but the threat from these evil bastards is still out there Lord Mayor Brendan Carr
Carr also urged anyone with information on any gangland killing to come forward.
He said: “If an innocent person is murdered and someone with information hasn’t come forward, then they are contributing towards that.
“Withholding information on Trevor’s death is just as bad as those who pulled the trigger.
“I spoke to the gardai and I believe they are making progress in a wide range of cases — we should never rest until these evil parasites are brought to justice.”
Northsider Brendan also told how Ireland’s evil gangsters prey on terrified communities.
He said: “We have intimidation and people are afraid to speak out. This is still an issue. People have information on crimes and they are genuinely afraid to say anything because of what might happen.
“This information must be kept confidential and they must be protected by the State and gardai.
“They are effectively putting their own lives at risk to save the rest of us from these evil bastards… We need to install more confidence in this process so we can help bring these thugs to justice.
“I’m confident gardai and the State will do all they can to help anyone who comes forward.”
‘It’s great to see the luxury cars being seized’
OUTRAGED Lord Mayor Brendan Carr has welcomed An Garda Siochana’s vow to target the mid-level drug dealers terrorising the capital. He welcomed the crackdown against Kinahan cartel ‘facilitators’ under Operation Thistle in the south inner city and the asset profiles in the north inner city which have targeted the dealers spending thousands of euro on luxury holidays. And he praised the efforts of the Garda’s Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau in preventing 18 murders and recovering high-powered automatic weapons. Councillor Carr said: “I welcome the gardai’s efforts to target all levels of drug-dealing activity across the city. “I met a family where both parents were working yet they were in emergency accommodation. They look across the street and see someone in a BMW and this is not the message that young people need to see. “Any person who can go on a cruise or Disneyland, if they can’t explain where the money comes from then there should be a thorough investigation. We need to have the mini-CAB model implemented across the city. “We need to try and stop young people being attracted to crime and it was great to see the luxury cars of dangerous criminals being seized. I’d like to see more operations like this.”
Former Lord Mayor Brendan Carr: Where are you? Fred Bassett has just read and uploaded the foregoing to his blog. As a dog, naturally I have limited words but as far as instinct is concerned or scent I can offer so much more than people think. Did you know that Christy Kinahan (Cartel FAME and now add his son Daniel into Boxing FAME world category profiles) have been written about in the US Forbes magazine. Enough is enough. 18 people are dead in Ireland related to this FEUD which is basically executed from Dubai, the gateway to the world yet a country where execution applies for the most venial of sins deemed so by their Ruling Elites; their leader has an Irish passport and owns nearly all the land through entities in the UK. Fred is looking at the global map above and what strikes him is … how stupid he has been to think all the drugs travelled basically to the right and in through England and Europe and targetted for the Ireland. When you explore the map above then you can understand why Colombia has submarines and then the capacity to make the west coast of Ireland a haven for landing drugs and sending them through a network in Ireland to Europe, which has an insatiable appetite for same. They say also that Eastern Europe is a big market for illegal drugs. Did you know that drugs in the South of Ireland are transited through the North – North Eastern Antrim linked UVF and UDA. Panorama or search this site and you will find out more.
What is it they say “The eyes are the window to the Soul”. These eyes (Photos of Kinahan Father and Son) are haunting and their narrative is so twisted that they have the people of Ireland in a state of denial as to what the drug culture is on our Island; the corruption, destruction, and now execution type killings of their opposition namely the Hutch part of the Kinahan Hutch Feud is spoken about but only in whispers. FEAR is destroying our country and nobody is prepared, apart from a few, exceptions Assistant Police Commissioner John O’Driscoll and his team and Nicola Tallant who relentlessly reports through every medium from the Sunday World, to her podcast, and recently the 1 hour TV documentary on TV3.
FEAR has to be stood down and that means confronting it. We know 18 lives are lost due to the FEUD. However how many lives are lost through death from drug overdoses in Ireland, but also in Europe and beyond, as Ireland through the Kinahan Cartel appears to be a main supplier. The deaths will never be known but the truth is no serial killer or war commander is as responsible for deaths of innocents as these Drug Dealers. Truth…I know if I had a son or a daughter who got hooked on cocaine and ran up debts; it is human nature to say that you would probably make you sell your car, your house, your life to get these gangsters off your back rather than go down the right way by notifying the Garda and putting your child in addiction centre. Sadly we need TRUTH urgently.

2 Innocent men who were murdered by these Illegal Cartels of Corruption and who represent the thousands of people who have died from drug addiction and illegal engagements because of their addiction.
Fred says: These Gangs from Dubai, Europe or wherever they are granted lodgings because of their wealth by illgotten gains have made the Irish Republic a Police State…we don’t want this.
