It has been linked to dozens of murders and acts of violence, but this was the first time the Kinahan cartel was mentioned by name in court by gardaí.

The involvement of a 31-year-old petty criminal in a plot to murder Patrick Hutch helped reveal some of the inner workings of the shadowy international crime gang.

The Special Criminal Court heard yesterday that Mark Capper of Cappagh Green, Finglas, "poured cold water on" and withdrew from a plan to murder The Monk's brother 'Patsy' Hutch three days before it was due to take place.
