Hopefully its true, and destroys the lives of these criminals and their families and associates.
I can’t imagine that the suspect who died would have been computer savvy enough to cover his tracks either. I’d actually say that most of the stuff found in his safe house was in written form.

For most of those scumbags, Irish nationalism is a handy flag of convenience that allows them to indulge in their criminal and psychopathic acts.

They are bullies and cowards and wouldn't think twice about grassing up their own.

I'd say it was across the water he picked up the Dublin Jimmy sobriquet. Any Irish person would take one look at the lad and surmise he wasn't reared anywhere near the big smoke

Truer word never said and not said often enough. Nobody scumbags trying to make a name for themselves cuz they can't cut it in the real world.

He's a hard man now but not in the sense he wished for.

Judging by the laughable intimidatory signs that were put up, he didn’t know how to use spellchecker anyway. I wonder if the treasure trove of information found my the police includes his household budget with his “salery and expences” on it. Fugging moron.

A commenter posted this on The Guardian Facebook for someone asking the same and I thought it was really helpful (not sure if it's correct though as I also don't know the situation well)

"I live on the border with Northern Ireland. This story is really complicated, and connected with the crash in 2008. The original owner of this company, Sean Quinn, was at the time the richest man in Ireland. He unfortunately tried to make money in the futures markets backing a bank called Anglo Irish Bank, who were the most exposed bank in Ireland when the banks crashed, and lost everything. He lost so much that all of his companies were declared bankrupt and were shut down. fast forward about five years, and the building industry in Ireland started to pick up again. A group of his former company directors got together and tried to raise the finances to reopen the building supply wing of his companies. Sean Quinn wanted back in, but his name was so tarnished that their financial advisers told them that they wouldn't be able to raise any capital if he was associated with the attempt, so they refused him. They raised the capital to reopen and did. Here's where it gets complicated. Sean Quinn established his empire during the Troubles in Ireland. One of the main sources of income for terrorists during the Troubles was "protection money", money paid to terrorist groups to "protect" your business (pure mafia). Sean Quinn grew up in this environment, so he paid. When the company reopened, terrorist groups who formerly received protection payments thought the golden goose was back, so they contacted the new owners to tell them what their protection bill would be. The new board refused to pay. This attack is the latest escalation in an attempt by Irish gangsters to force a company to pay them. They cut this man to ribbons, then poured bleach in his wounds. They broke his leg with a fence post, then hit it again because they didn't hear the snap. They slashed under his fingernails with a box knife then dipped his hands in bleach. They carved the initials of his company into his chest with a box knife. They then dumped him in a ditch at the side of a rarely used country road in the middle of nowhere, but away from beside the road, in a grass verge, hoping he would be found dead (a common practice for informers during the Troubles in Ireland). This is literally the bare bones of the story. Hope it helps you to understand why certainly on this occasion, businessmen are not the enemy."
