    Daniel Kinahan statement five years on from the Regency Hotel attack

    The target of the Regency Hotel attack, Daniel Kinahan, has suggested he will never return to Ireland.
    On the fifth anniversary of one of the most dramatic murders in Irish gangland history, Kinahan has indicated he cannot leave his new base in the Middle East.

    The 43-year-old has issued a lengthy statement to the Irish Independent in which he claims to be “a legitimate and respected businessman” working in the boxing world.

    “Daniel is incapable of receiving a fair trial, not just in Ireland but elsewhere in the world due to the barrage of media accusations and coverage,” the statement says.

    Five years on from the Regency Hotel shooting, where are the main figures of the Kinahan-Hutch feud now?
    ‘There was no prior warning, no prior intelligence’ – leading garda recalls horror of rival gang feud at hotel
    undefined
    Members of the Gardaí outside the Regency Hotel in Dublin following the fatal shooting of David Byrne
    Gardaí insist he is the leader of a ruthless criminal organisation and say they are building a case against him in relation to his alleged role in organised crime and murders.

    But Kinahan remains in Dubai out of the reach of our law enforcement agencies.

    The Department of Foreign Affairs has been in communication with authorities in the United Arab Emirates about Kinahan’s presence there.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Although he has been named in the High Court as the leader of an international drugs cartel, Kinahan claims the statements made in court were “wholly untrue and unsupported by any evidence”.

    Gardaí believe he has made millions of euro through drug dealing and he has been the target of police operations in the UK, Spain, the Netherlands, the Middle East and South America.

    Storming

    In the Dáil last year, then-Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he was “taken aback” to hear of Kinahan’s involvement in a major boxing match headlined by Tyson Fury.

    Mr Varadkar urged sports organisations and the media to “have nothing to do with” the fight.

    It is now five years since images of armed men dressed as gardaí storming a boxing weigh-in at the Regency Hotel in north Dublin shocked the country.

    While Kinahan escaped what was a third attempt on his life, his close associate and friend David Byrne was shot dead.

    It inflamed the Hutch-Kinahan feud which has resulted in up to 18 killings, including the murders of at least three innocent people.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    In his statement, Kinahan expresses no remorse for the feud or the deaths and instead presents himself as the victim of an “orchestrated” campaign of lies.

    “The opinion of gardaí, expressed during court proceedings unconnected to Daniel, is routinely presented as fact, absent of scrutiny or context,” the statement issued with Kinahan’s consent said.

    It adds that he is a “proud Irishman”, has no convictions and should be considered “innocent until proven guilty”.

    In the statement Kinahan says: “My wish, as is my God-given right, is to continue my professional and family life in peace and without continued harassment, and I will vigorously defend my right to do so.”

    It comes ahead of a BBC Panorama documentary to be screened on Monday night which is part of a lengthy investigation into the Dublin native and his role in boxing promotion.

    Kinahan was previously described in a CAB affidavit to the High Court as managing and controlling the day-to-day drug trafficking operations of the Kinahan gang.

    According to evidence put forward by CAB before the High Court, Daniel Kinahan is one of two leaders of the Kinahan cartel and is based in Dubai.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    “It would appear that (Christopher Kinahan Snr) is now resident in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and that the day-to-day operations of his drug trafficking are managed and controlled by his sons, Christopher Jnr and Daniel Kinahan,” the court was told.

    Ultimately the CAB action against the cartel resulted in them losing €1.4m in criminal assets.
    The statement does not directly address the fact that Daniel Kinahan and his father and brother were all main targets and were among 23 people arrested in Spain, Ireland and the UK as part of the massive 2010 international police operation into international drug smuggling codenamed Operation Shovel.

          Thanks for that. The only problem is ther article has nothing of Gerry Hutch its all Kinehan. It doesnt have the part that was free to unsubbed readers unless thats all that was listed of GH. Must be one of the worst click bait headlines ever. No story about Hutch!.

          SPOILER
          Five years ago this Friday, in the shadow of a closed garda station, the most audacious attack in Irish gangland history took place.

          Members of the Hutch crime gang stormed a boxing weigh-in at the Regency Hotel and tried to murder mob boss Daniel Kinahan. The gunmen, some dressed in garda tactical uniforms, ultimately failed in their mission. However, this pivotal moment in the Hutch-Kinahan feud sparked a series of retaliatory murders as the Kinahan cartel unleashed an unprecedented vengeful campaign against the gang led by Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch.

          The Sunday Independent can reveal this weekend that Hutch is the chief suspect as the getaway driver for the Regency Hotel attack and would be arrested on sight if he returns to Ireland.

            Stewards in Naas made another absolute howler of a mistake, a race that was clearly a false start wasn't called back and then the absolute imbeciles running the show called the weighed in before they called an ennquiry and so couldn't void the race as it should have been. Optics are awful as the runner up was left 40 lengths at the start.

            I'm particularly pissed off about this one as I had backed the one that threw its jockey at the start but its just another in a increasing list of shambolic stewarding mistakes.

                Two parts it was 100% a false start and for somehow the starter made a mistake and missed that Philip Enrights horse had thrown him and taken a few others away preventing them from lining up.
                That mistake can be seen as just (yet another) one of those things that happens and as of nothing compared to -words fail me trying to describe the level of stupidity - someone calling the weighed in before the Stewards Enquiry was announced. Were the stewards who called the weighed in not watching or worse still watching it and initially not thinking it was worth holding the result over?

                The one thing I can be fairly sure of it there will be no consequences for either the stewards or starter.

                Don't want to be too critical of the starters who do it as a part time gig but perhaps that is part of the problem there are just too many drastic mistakes being made and someone needs to start banging heads together to sort things out.

                      Met one of those lads casually a while ago . All I could do was look at his teeth. They were the whitest most perfect id ever seen. Money well spent.

                            It’s unreal. And you have people defending it again, I can’t understand it, the chap deserves no benefit of the doubt.

                            the whole Rory thing is such bs.

                            Shame too cos P Reed has the best short game on tour, I’d like to like watching him but he’s such a prick.

                            his missus on the burner account (useGOLFFacts) on Twitter last night is too gas.
                            This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
                            All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

                                  Ball won't plug after a small hop. Think about it.

                                  Rory's may have hopped back into his plug mark but Reed's clearly hopped forward. Couldn't have been embedded. He called for a ruling AFTER he moved his ball out of the alleged plug point. WTF. The judge can't rule on anything at this point because the ball is no longer embedded. No players or judges, other than Rory or Reed, confirmed the balls were embedded.

                                    Nobody saw it hop . It was over the hump . There is no way he could have seen the hop. He asked and nobody saw the hop.
                                    everything I e seen and heard is based off his reputation and not on the facts. He followed the rules . You may not like him but he is not stupid. He knows the eyeballs of the haters are on him. Total OTT reaction IMO

                                        Nobody needs to see it hop. That's not the point. The point is the ball wasn't embedded because it's couldn't embed after a hop forward. No down force to break ground.

                                              So you believe the ball was embedded then? Right so.

                                                He said he thought it was embedded . He didnt see the hop. The ground was mush it was sitting well down in it. If it were Tiger there would be zero doubters . Not 1 of you know what the conditions were like . My point is ye are wrong to call him a cheat . He could well have but you are cbias. I have no idea if it was embedded, the rules official was happy . I think to avoid the witch hunting he should have left it. Not sure he gives a shit though. The interview will be interesting.

                                                  That Donnelly thumbs up thing is insane.

                                                  Such arrogance. I had a little bit of sympathy for him up until that. He's got to go.

                                                  The twitter stuff is really funny though.

                                                    I am basing it on the balance of likelihood’s.

                                                    It couldn’t have been embedded. Whether someone saw it bounce or not, it did bounce. If couldn’t have embedded.

                                                    When he got there, he didn’t call an official over, he didn’t even see his ball and he said “did it bounce?” So he was clearly angleshooting, at the very least, which is against the spirit of the rules, and for a pro is bad form.

                                                    Then without calling an official over he picks it up. This is actually within the rules in this scenario, but pretty much all the ex pros to a man/woman have said they’d never do that, call an official over first.

                                                    Then he picks it up and tells the official it was embedded, but he wants him to confirm.
                                                    It couldn’t have been embedded. So he lied. Why would he lie?

                                                    If it was anyone else, yeah you’d say benefit of the doubt. But it’s not.

                                                      Rorys was questionable too tbh, but less so and he doesn’t have the history Reed has.

                                                          No idea who that guy is but no way that ball would have been embedded - it had nearly 0 force after the bounce. He would have just pushed down on it or even used his fingers after.

                                                          Shouldn't your playing partner or rules official be looking at this before it is moved?

                                                            The rule used to be that you need someone to look before you move it. Back when you were a junior phenom theres no way you would have picked it up first but the rule now has been changed to speed up pace of play.

                                                            If you believe it’s embedded you can take a free drop. If you aren’t sure you can mark it with a tee and check. If it is, you drop if it’s not you put it back.

The ground was mush it was sitting well down in it. If it were Tiger there would be zero doubters . Not 1 of you know what the conditions were like . My point is ye are wrong to call him a cheat . He could well have but you are cbias. I have no idea if it was embedded, the rules official was happy . I think to avoid the witch hunting he should have left it. Not sure he gives a shit though. The interview will be interesting.
                                                                                              Not sure why you used Tiger there when that is way off the mark. Plenty of bogey stuff over the years that has been called out by media.

                                                                                              https://eu.usatoday.com/story/sports...ating/3150681/

                                                                                              You could have used Rory who actually had the same situation this week and very few doubters including me.

                                                                                              Reed is clearly a massive angle shooter with empirical evidence to back it up. But i think he's great and great for the entertainment of the game as a viewer. What a player.

                                                                                              But i do think this shit trickles down. Mosts rounds i have a drive where i don't see it land and my initial reaction has never ever be to think if it bounced and is it embedded. I can't really remember a time i've taken relief in the rough for an embedded ball but sure i have. Plenty in the fairway alright where it is clearly evident the ball has been buried in its pitchmark. Plenty of golfers in clubs across the country that will use this rubbish to their advantage now that it is highlighted.

                                                                                                  I played a friendly onetime with a Portmarnock head in the group. A friendly game. I took a 50 foot putt that I left hanging on the lip . I picked it up , everyone nodded before I did. The portnarnock arse said . Sorry tHats a penalty. He fking nodded .

                                                                                                  As for TIGERRRR. My point as you well know is. The outrage from pendants would not be the same Reed is just hated .

                                                                                                  Your point on club golfers then cheating is comical in trying to blame Reed for that.

                                                                                                  As for my PGA point Thersea I'm talking about the rules official. He was ok with it . It was up to him really to call it

                                                                                                            I played a friendly onetime with a Portmarnock head in the group. A friendly game. I took a 50 foot putt that I left hanging on the lip . I picked it up , everyone nodded before I did. The portnarnock arse said . Sorry tHats a penalty. He fking nodded .
                                                                                                            Agreed. It's getting better though.

                                                                                                            I suppose i understand your point. But your example completely contradicted your point.

                                                                                                            Your point on club golfers then cheating is comical in trying to blame Reed for that.
                                                                                                            Wasn't trying to be funny and also not blaming Reed directly. The ruling got a lot of attention. Golf is the ultimate monkey see monkey do sport. I've seen mid handicappers use the aim point method in the last few years and i know a few who are all in on increasing their ball speed since Bryson beefed up.
                                                                                                            I think the darker cohort will be thinking of that ruling they next time they have a shite lie on a wet day in the rough. Some may go as far as standing on their ball? I dunno probably a massive exaggeration..

                                                                                                                    You could have used Rory who actually had the same situation this week and very few doubters including me.

                                                                                                                    Reed is clearly a massive angle shooter with empirical evidence to back it up. But i think he's great and great for the entertainment of the game as a viewer. What a player.

                                                                                                                    But i do think this shit trickles down. Mosts rounds i have a drive where i don't see it land and my initial reaction has never ever be to think if it bounced and is it embedded. I can't really remember a time i've taken relief in the rough for an embedded ball but sure i have. Plenty in the fairway alright where it is clearly evident the ball has been buried in its pitchmark. Plenty of golfers in clubs across the country that will use this rubbish to their advantage now that it is highlighted.
                                                                                                                    If you are a regular Joe you still should confirm with a playing partner that the ball is embedded before taking relief. The pros usually confirm with a judge. Both Rory and Reed mentioned it to their playing partners and they said grand, fire ahead and take relief, without going over and having a look at the ball.

The ruling got a lot of attention. Golf is the ultimate monkey see monkey do sport. I've seen mid handicappers use the aim point method in the last few years and i know a few who are all in on increasing their ball speed since Bryson beefed up.
                                                                                                                        I think the darker cohort will be thinking of that ruling they next time they have a shite lie on a wet day in the rough. Some may go as far as standing on their ball? I dunno probably a massive exaggeration..

I'm saying if it were Tiger the outrage would be less . Golf can be a popularity competition plus a lot of peoples fav golfer is all about how much mula you made from them Personally POD is my fav based on his craziness, and his Irishness and probably the most honest golfer out there too . Tiger the best who has played is a dickhead. Jack Nicklaus also a dickhead . I Like Casey .
