Government must do much more to safeguard Veronica’s legacy – Irish Independent
Kinahan’s associates let their guard slip somewhat at the funeral of feud victim David Byrne, where there was an obvious display of wealth, including a fleet of limousines, a funeral casket with a reputed cost of €15,000 and, reportedly, a €25,000 bar bill.
A series of CAB raids prompted by the scenes at the funeral led to the seizure of luxury cars, motorcycles, jewellery and Rolex watches.
In the wake of the feuding new laws have been proposed by the Government to give gardaí powers to seize more assets. Detectives will also be able to engage in more electronic surveillance.
