Thomas ‘Bomber’ Kavanagh is facing a tonne of misery in the UK after a recent court appearance heard that he is to be sentenced in relation to an incredible 292 kilos of cocaine and 600-800 kilos of cannabis.

According to Crown prosecutors, the tonne of Class A and B drugs – with a combined street value of more than €45 million – was imported through a route into Dover which was busted in 2017 when Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Garda’s Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau moved in and took him down.

Bomber, who is regarded as Daniel Kinahan’s UK business partner and who sat at the very top of the Byrne Organised Crime gang for two decades, is the biggest scalp so far in the fight against the Kinahan mafia.

We take a look at the rise of the Dublin-born criminal and how the once-powerful mob boss was eventually brought to justice.
