    I had not seen that mentioned before.
    Did he have a CRH connection ? Haulage was his first business.

    Fianna Fail events were held in his hotel.

    What's Jim junior. been up to?

    Businessman Jim Mansfield Jnr has denied there is any threat against his life, saying: “I wouldn’t see any reason why any- one would want to harm me.”
    Insisting that he has “bigger worries”, a defiant Mr Mansfield claimed a threat to his life is “news to me”.The son of the late hotelier, businessman and airport owner Jim Mansfield Snr made the remarks despite gardai saying that they had warned him of an “active threat” to his life.
    The Herald has learned that detectives from Clondalkin Garda Station had officially warned Mr Mansfield that there is a threat against the life.
    Security sources said the associates of a notorious criminal have been approached about taking him down

    Mansfield in the mix again.

    DOZENS of armed gardai were involved in a huge series of raids in west Dublin today, including a hotel which is managed by businessman Jim Mansfield Junior.
    Detectives from the Organised Crime Unit were backed up by officers from the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) in the operation which was planned for weeks in advance.The searches at Finnstown Castle Hotel in Lucan and apartments in the Citywest complex were still ongoing at lunchtime, after they started at dawn.
    At least one solicitor’s office was raided as part of the massive operation.

    And something in the Indo on this again
    http://www.independent.ie/irish-news...-31453341.html

    Our exclusive photos show Mansfield leaving a west Dublin hotel this week with Ballymun gangster Thomas 'Nicky' McConnell before the duo were driven away in the same car by a third man.
    Before driving away from the hotel McConnell (30) scoped out the car park before the trio hopped into a black Audi car.
    It is not known why the well-known businessman was in the company of the volatile criminal, who has more 80 previous convictions for offences including threatening to kill a woman, drug dealing criminal damage, road traffic and possession of firearms.
    The mysterious meeting took place on Tuesday afternoon at a hotel in Blanchardstown.
    Attempts to get a comment from Mr Mansfield (49) in relation to the meeting were unsuccessful.
    Sources said that gardai have been monitoring McConnell's movements since he was released from prison earlier this year.
    He was jailed after admitting that he threatened to kill a woman and put her in the boot of his car as she collected her son from school.

    Fianna Fail will have a lot of questions to answer when the truth comes fully out.
    Do the right thing.

    Haven't seen any update since.

    What I'm curious about is why are the Guards paying marked attentions to the Mansfield family finances only now that the old man is out of the way? And why is this guy allegedly being threatened by 'criminal elements' whereas the old man was seemingly immune? Suggestive of the old man being protected at senior political level or am I over-speculating?

    A handgun licence issued to Jim Mansfield Jnr has been revoked by gardai.


    Senior gardai at Blanchardstown took the decision after being informed that Mansfield Jnr is allegedly the target of gangland criminals and paramilitaries.

    The Sunday Times reports that Mansfield Jnr was told of the decision in a face-to-face meeting with gardai before Christmas and has not challenged the decision to date.

    The handgun, a Walther P22 pistol, was seized by gardai a year ago during the search of a residence in West Dublin used by Mansfield Jnr as part of an investigation into money laundering.

    Am I the only one that is curious as to why did he have a handgun licence in the first place, seeing as according to this article they are mainly issued to..

    It shows how completely rotten the entire system is, that something that has been an open secret since the mid-80s still cannot even be hinted at in "polite society".

    It'll all come out in the end....in a few decades time, when everyone involved is safely dead of course.
