It was planned as the Kinahan Mafia’s trophy kill, with only Daniel Kinahan and Thomas ‘Bomber’ Kavanagh's most trusted circle of lieutenants privy to the plans.

But, in an incredible turn of events, the 2017 plot to assassinate Hutch target James ‘Mago’ Gately at his Newry apartment became the undoing of the most powerful crime gang in Ireland.

Last week, criminal Douglas Glynn became the fifth man convicted in relation to the foiled plot to kill and Nicola Tallant chats with Sunday World Deputy Editor Niall Donald about the seminal moment in the State’s fight against the powerful Kinahan mob.
