Episode 102: The life and crimes of Kinahan cartel crony Johnny 'Cash' Morrissey
The mob enforcer who thought he was untouchable - until he was sanctioned by U.S. for laundering dirty money
For years flash Johnny Morrissey has been splashing his cash on the Costa del Crime, where his luxury villa is a monument to the Roman Emperor Nero.
Larger than life, Morrissey thought he was untouchable - but now that he has been named as the Kinahan mafia’s Costa enforcer and sanctioned by U.S. for laundering dirty money, the vodka boss has been running for cover.
But Morrissey is no newcomer to the underworld scene and he has run away before, including from a fishing village in rural Ireland where he tried to land shipments of cocaine on the Cork coastline.
Nicola Tallant talks with Sunday World journalist Eamon Dillon about the incredible life and crimes of the Kinahan crony who Irish neighbours dubbed 'Johnny Cash'.
