The antics of Daniel Kinahan and his insistence that he is an innocent boxing promoter wrongly accused of involvement in organised crime spectacularly backfired this week.

In an extraordinary conference in Dublin, the Kinahan mob were sanctioned just like Russian Oligarchs as the forces of law from the US, Europe and the UK stood together to declare Christy Kinahan Snr and his two sons as enemies of the State.

In a series of speeches, border officers, police chiefs and our own Commissioners laid bare the Kinahans' journey from the streets of Dublin to the very top of a trans-global network dealing in drugs, guns and murder while laundering €1 billion profits in business interests across the world.

Nicola Tallant chats with Sunday World Deputy Editor, Niall Donald, about the most incredible day in Irish criminal history – one which will cement the role the Kinahans have played in changing the face of crime fighting for good.
