Gangland hitman Jonathan Keogh murdered Gareth Hutch after his 'New INLA' faction aligned itself to the Kinahan cartel.
However, the 33-year-old didn't receive a cent for the killing with detectives discovering that the promised money "never exchanged hands". Senior investigators were so concerned that Keogh would carry out further crimes linked to the Hutch/Kinahan feud that strenuous objections to him receiving bail were successfully raised in the High Court.
Keogh - along with cartel associates and convicted killers 'Fat' Freddie Thompson, Eamonn Cumberton and Barry Doyle - also had to be transferred from Mountjoy Prison while on remand because of serious disciplinary issues.
After the move he was engaged in a 24-hour dirty protest which he followed with a six-day hunger strike. The convicted killer will now serve his life sentence in Portlaoise.
