Stiff enough sentence.

Has everything settled down after your man took a heart attack and died? A lot of them ATM robberies have settled as well....

The arrest of the paymaster is imminent

Who is the paymaster? Quinn?
Do you think Cyril McGuinness was just acting off his own initiative?

I don't know and am genuinely interested.

About 100 pages ago I addressed all that. But basically..

- Lunney and crew were happy to gain from the work of dissident and criminals who were attacking previous owners
- Previous owners left as a result and Lunney group came in. Attacks stopped
- Quinn came into the board and then got booted out
- Some talk of Lunneys gang selling out sections to competition (Quinn would never have done this)
- Attacks restart, Lunney threatened and eventually kipnapped and assaulted.

So whether the dissidents/criminals returned to be seen to protect local jobs and to garner support in the area at a time when they were trying to rebuild or whether others unknown were encouraging them is my best bet. I dont think Sean Quinn was involved in that is my opinion, not sure what his motive would be cos either way he can never get his company back.
Somehow I have strong misgivings about the criminal group having benign motives. If Quinn was not involved, then my guess is extortion was the motive behind the overtly violent harassment. These nasty criminal characters are out to serve themselves.

Was there ever a request for a ransom or money made to Lunney and Co?

Lunney wasn't kidnapped per se. just taken, tortured and then released, that was a message/threat not a kidnapping, therefore no ransom request. that and the history of the violent campaign suggests to me that the gang were attempting to extort cash from Quinn Ins.

Hardly any point torturing him, burning equipment and the likes unless you actually ask for the cash.

Seems strange not even asking for any money unless they wanted something else...

Did they not want him to step down and stop with ongoing legal action both sides of the border?

These three must have been getting serious money from "The Paymaster" to carry out such a torture session.
How stupid were they to think that when a man had been smashed and sliced so badly, it wasn't going to come to the attention of the Gardai?

Will any of them squeal on the paymaster or is/was there a cut-out in between? (e.g. 'Dublin Jimmy')

I'd suspect "Dublin Jimmy" was the only contact with "Paymaster".

Or maybe there was no "Paymaster" given that some of ye on here were saying this famous paymaster would be outed at any moment. Where does local man Luke the Crook fit into your theory? Surely he would have know the "paymaster" too?
