He would have been a major hurdle in the peace process.George Seawright. He was an iconic Loyalist of the 1980s who believed a lot of incredibly strange things and managed to get kicked out of the DUP as it was back than for sectarianism. He would still be regarded today as a hero among strands of Loyalism. He was killed by the IPLO in a hit that probably involved also the UK Deep State.
Urban myth has it that once her faction wrestled control of the Dunne group, Margaret Heffernan turned up at Kinsealy demanding her money back. Pity theres no photos to confirm or deny that either ...I'd have loved to see that moment immortalised!No Photo ( even fuzzy or unfocused) to be found on the net.....:shock2: But a little bit of the history none the less....
When Ben Dunne Jr was arrested in a Florida hotel in 1992 not only did it open up a window on his lifestyle, which included cocaine and buying sex, but kick-started a battle with his siblings for control of the Dunnes empire which spilled secrets on political corruption and resulted in a tribunal of investigation.
This tribunal revealed that Ben Dunne had made more than 1.3 million pounds in secret payments to soon-to-be disgraced Fianna Fáil Taoiseach Charles Haughey.
What is remembered by the whole country is the exchange between Dunne and Haughey about a payment made on top of the 1.3 million pounds which later was recounted at the tribunal: Heres something for yourself (Dunne), Thanks, big fella (Haughey).
Whats less well remembered is the fact that Haughey arranged meetings for Dunne and his tax advisor with the then Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners Seamus Parcéir to discuss the Dunne family trust tax assessment.
