He is due to face kidnap charges later this year in the UK and has been a central and violent figure in the Drogheda feud - but it seems gang boss Cornelius Price is unlikely to ever face up to his crimes.

Price, whose gang are suspected of a number of murders including that of William Maughan and his pregnant girlfriend Anna Varslavane, is currently in critical condition in hospital after being struck down by a terminal illness.

Months short of his 40th birthday, Price has left a bloody mark on Ireland’s underworld and today I’m talking to Irish Independent journalist Ken Foy about the terrifying past of one of the most-notorious gangland figures in modern criminal history.

We discuss the Co Meath compound where Price lived surrounded by his underlings, his role in the escalating violence in Drogheda which culminated in the brutal murder of teenager Keane Mulready Woods and the day he celebrated the death of rival mobster Robbie Lawlor by toasting his demise.
