A Kinahan cartel member who has relocated back to Dublin has begun to emerge as a key figure in the criminal underworld following the Garda’s dismantling of the Christy Kinahan-founded “Byrne organised crime group” in the city.
Gardaí believe the man, a Dubliner in his 30s, is now in a prime position to take on a dominant role in the drugs trade after a period of unprecedented flux in Irish gangland over the past four or five years.
