Crime boss Dundon turns to hospital for liposuction
FREED vicious crime boss Wayne Dundon has sought liposuction surgery for his widening girth from two of the country's best-known private hospitals.
The Irish Independent has learned that the notorious Limerick criminal has turned to the Mater hospital in Dublin and Barrington's hospital in Limerick to remove excess fat.
Dundon was freed from Wheatfield prison on March 19 after completing his sentence for threatening to kill Limerick barman Ryan Lee in 2004.
It is believed that Dundon has been on the waiting list of the Mater hospital for some time, but frustrated by the lengthy delay, he turned to his local hospital in Limerick -- Barrington's -- seeking consultation.
It is understood that he was in the hospital in recent days but has not received surgery.
The hospital, which provides a range of medical and cosmetic services, was selected by Dundon this month. There was no hospital spokesperson available for comment last night.
While incarcerated at Wheatfield, Dundon used weights and was personally trained by convicted drug dealer and former Irish super heavyweight boxing champion John Kinsella.
However, Dundon now seems determined to have surgery on his lower torso in a bid to shed unwanted pounds which he was unable to lose during his intense fitness regime.
Since his release, gardai in Limerick have been carefully monitoring the movements of Dundon and his associates.
