It's getting even more bizarre: The Department of Transport has apparently knowingly given Boylan a road haulage license, despite him clearly not fitting the criteria, which Gardai say they believe he is using to import drugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the hell is going on?????
The Department of Transport ignored its own policy guidelines last September by issuing a road-haulage licence to one of Ireland’s most notorious drugs traffickers after consultations with unidentified gardai.
The opposition has called on Noel Dempsey, the transport minister, to explain how Kieran Boylan, a convicted criminal whose relationship with the force is the subject of an inquiry by the garda ombudsman, was issued with the licence despite departmental rules which state that hauliers must be of “good repute”.
Even though they were aware that Boylan had a previous conviction for drug trafficking, transport officials gave him a five-year permit to operate a haulage business.
Six weeks ago the transport department also allowed Boylan to change the name which appears on his licence to Ciaran O’Baoighallan, an Irish translation.
The haulage licence allows Boylan to operate an international transport business. Gardai sources said they fear he uses this as a cover for his drug smuggling activities, and that the Irish language name will help him to evade detection.
A spokeswoman for Dempsey said it was not policy to comment on the details of individual cases. She noted that all applications for haulage licences were decided in consultation with gardai, but declined to confirm whether gardai had made representations on Boylan’s behalf. A spokesman for the Garda Siochana refused to comment.

The licence entitles Boylan to operate a haulage service under the trade name Alan International. It was registered using the Irish version of his name, Ciaran O’Baoighallan, immediately after charges against him for drugs trafficking were dropped in controversial circumstances by the director of public prosecutions in July.
The charges related to the seizure of heroin and cocaine worth €1.7m at a truckers’ yard in Ardee, Co Louth, by the Garda National Drugs Unit (GNDU) in October 2005. In issuing the licence the transport department was aware of Boylan’s status as a serious criminal.
Six weeks ago Boylan asked officials to change the name on his haulage licence to the Irish version. Officials at the haulage licensing department in Galway initially refused to agree to the change of name, but were instructed to comply with the request by the transport department in Dublin.
And:


The circumstances behind the issuing of an earlier haulage licence in May 2003 are equally controversial. Boylan was given it after being released from a British prison where he had served a 7.5-year sentence imposed in 1997 for drug smuggling.
In this licence application, Boylan denied that he had a criminal record. A year later, in the summer of 2004, a whistleblower called the Department of Transport to point out that Boylan was a convicted drugs trafficker. This tip-off prompted an inquiry into his licence.
The department wrote to garda headquarters asking for more information. The request was referred to gardai in the Louth/Meath division where Boylan was operating the trucking business and secretly smuggling drugs. Gardai from the division sent back a report confirming that Boylan was a convicted drug smuggler and pointing out that he was also facing charges relating to the seizure of heroin and cocaine worth €750,000 at Dublin Port in December 2003 after an operation led by the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
This information was not relayed to the Department of Transport, according to garda and departmental sources. Instead, officials were told by gardai that Boylan had no “drugs convictions”.
Boylan told a number of witnesses that he had a friend in the force who had “sorted the matter out”. His haulage licence was not revoked but expired last May, requiring him to apply for a new one.
This is insane. They are still telling us there is nothing to see here, that it's all inter-Gardai rivalry, a ball of smoke. This is clearly a lie! What's going on in this case is absolutely rotten!

I'm sure that's so that people wouldn't think he was a 'notorious drug trafficker" or something awful like that. It's the kind of thing can really go against you when your trying to start up a new business.

Clearly somebody is being protected, but who?

Yes indeed something really rotten. Sorry for forgetting about your excellent thread.

The interesting thing about this is, it looks as if the dept of transport and dept of justice are involved. If both are involved this mean the order came from a very high level....

there is absolutely no way on earth a drug dealer operating out of the louth border area as a licensed haulier previously convicted in a British court in the mid 1990s was not on the radar of the British intelligence services . This license business is way more than a few gardai with an unhealthy relationship . Donegal is chickenfeed compared to this . A large percentage of the garda detective unit are illegally in the pay of the British intelligence services , some openly admiting it and daring a governemnt to do something about it , and institutionally corrupt . This man was also protected to the extent that Irish citizens who did ther duty and reported to gardai the whereabouts of a drugs cache this criminal hid near their property found instead that gardai tipped off the drug dealer , informed to him on them . Putting their lives in great danger .
Of course these are the same people currently telling us its necessary to introduce rabidly draconian legislation which strips Irish citizens of their rights due to the activities of a mere handful of families in the same profession of Ciaran Boylan .
What are you seeing here is merely the tip of a massive and dirty iceberg concerning the detectives of this deeply corrupt and wholly unnaccountable force . Completely unnaccountable to the Irish people and determined to stay that way for reasons which are glaringly obvious

If the guy is a convicted drug dealer then why are the CAB not all over him? Either he is an informer or else he has dirt on somebody big.

This stinks to high heaven. Dempsey should resign immediately but of course he won't.
We've become so inured to the low standards that what would be a clear resignation issue in a country where accountability actually counted for something, will instead be swept under the carpet here.

hes not an informer , hes an agent . Big difference . Agents make things happen .
If hes working for the British the garda detective unit will do all in their power to assist him . Because they are working illegally for the British also in many cases . This police force which told the department of transport he had no convictions is the same police force which told the Dublin Monaghan families and an oireachtas committee they were completely unaware of and unable to trace the whereabouts of a prime suspect in Irelands biggest mass murder , armagh loyalist William McClean . When in fact Mr McClean was testifying in the Cathrine Nevin case as a state witness and apparently had been working as a garda agent for some years .
The garda detective unit is to all intents and purposes run by foreign interests who simply do not have the interests of the Irish people at heart . This means that the Irish peoples interests are not served by the garda special detectives . They are institutionally corrupt and you can bet your life this is not the only drug dealer in the country being facilitated at the highest level and under the states protection. Its been going on for a very long time .

As merle alluded to above, the wort thing in this whole saga (this has been a whole nine months since first mentioned in the Press) is the threatening of an innocent family whose mistake was to trust the Gardai when they gave evidence to them. Their details fell straight into the hands of Boylan. An innocent family who did their civic duty. If it happened like I believe it happened then those Guards and anyone colluding with them should be tried and then crucified, their actions were the worst kind of treason in my opinion.

The Garda commissioner has questions to answer also. He stayed silent over the misue of Garda time over the picturegate scandal also. Its now clear that the coppers are looking after the government and not the people.
