Gangster caught with weapons belonging to Kinahan cartel jailed for ten-and-a-half years A gangster caught with an arsenal of weapons belonging to the Kinahan drugs cartel was jailed for ten-and-a-half years on Monday.

Declan Brady - dubbed “Mr Nobody” pleaded guilty to a litany of firearms charges at the Special Criminal Court.

The 53-year old from The Park, Wolstan Abbey, Celbridge, Co Kildare, “supervised and was in overall charge” of an “arsenal” of 17 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

He admitted to the possession of nine revolvers, four semi-automatic pistols, a sub-machine gun, an assault rifle and 1,355 rounds of ammunition in suspicious circumstances at Unit 52, Block 503, Grants Drive, Greenogue Business Park, Rathcoole, Co Dublin.

Presiding judge, Justice Paul Coffey, said the nature and quantity of the firearms, ammo and other items, warranted an inference that the “arsenal” was assembled to “support and sustain organised crime of the most serious nature”.

He said Brady was the “principal” target of a covert surveillance operation on the day in question.

Following his arrest, the weapons were found in the loft of a “fake” business premises, made to look like the Irish subsidiary of a legitimate UK haulage firm.

Along with 17 firearms in total, Justice Coffey said two silencers, two electronic tracking devices, a radio and a glove were found. The court heard previously that four loaded revolvers were found “ready for imminent use”.

Justice Coffey said Brady was assisted by two other persons who had been dealt with previously.

The judge said Brady had received instructions from senior criminal figures based abroad to “mind” the “arsenal”. The fact Brady was in “overall charge” of the cache required the court to fix a headline sentence of 14 years, where the maximum available sentence is 14 years.

Justice Coffey said the court would reduce the headline sentence to 11-and-a-half years to take account of the mitigating factors. He suspended the final year-and-a half of the sentence.

Brady had pleaded guilty, which was “timely” and valuable, “notwithstanding the strength of the evidence against him”. He had no relevant previous convictions and his daughter had been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, which was relevant to sentencing, the judge said.

Furthermore, a prison governor’s report indicated that Brady was of good behaviour while in custody and was not presenting any difficulties to prison authorities.

In order to incentivise Brady’s rehabilitation while in custody, Mr Justice Coffey, who sat with Judge Gerard Griffin and Judge David McHugh suspended the final year on condition Brady enter into a good behaviour bond for the suspended period.

When asked if he undertook to be so bound, Brady, wearing a grey three-piece suit and tie, said “I do”.

The sentence was backdated to January 24, 2017, when Brady first went into custody. He blew a kiss to family members as he was lead into custody.
