Pint-sized thug John Gilligan caught in web of lies
Gangster John Gilligan took to his Facebook page to accuse the Sunday World of lies - after we caught him telling porkies yet again.
The pint-sized thug told his handful of followers that he had NOT found another home, after we nabbed the family moving fixtures from Jessbrook to a remote Roscommon farmhouse.
He insisted: "I am in the capital of Ireland, Dublin, and not in Roscommon, Offaly, Leitrim or whatever town they're going to try and state next, but it's genuinely 'waffle'.
"I have no intention of leaving Dublin - I am in Dublin and the Garda know this because they pass me each day."
The Sunday World can reveal that he merely pays sporadic visits to the capital to see his relatives and has been living in his family bungalow beside the former Jessbrook Equestrian Centre in Kildare for almost a year.
Our team has been watching him for months as he spends his days working on the grounds of the bungalow, which the family have to hand back to the State on June 5.
Last week we revealed how Tracey Gilligan accepted delivery of a load of fencing and gates from Jessbrook to Strokestown in Roscommon, where she has keys to a stunning country retreat.

Locals say that a "couple" have rented the house but the Sunday World was watching as Tracey let herself in and out of the house with her own set of keys.
Gilligan was livid when we revealed that he has had a bolthole all along, despite claiming he will be homeless when CAB turfs him out of his remaining properties after a mammoth legal battle.
The criminal, who spent two decades in jail for drug dealing, has presented himself at Blanchardstown, where he has asked to be placed on the housing list.
The Gilligans' battle against CAB saw them use free legal aid while they fought the Bureau in every court in the land.
The case ended this year when the Supreme Court ruled that three properties - at Blanchardstown, Lucan and beside the former Jessbrook centre - were to be handed over.
