The senior Kinahan cartel figure tasked by associates abroad to mind an "arsenal" of firearms and ammunition in the loft of a "fake" Dublin business premises has been jailed for 10 years by the Special Criminal Court.

Declan Brady (53), known as ‘Mr Nobody’, pleaded guilty at the non-jury court to possessing 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.

Brady, with an address at The Park, Wolstan Abbey, Celbridge, Co Kildare, was sentenced to 11-and-a-half years in jail with the final year suspended.

Weapons were found in the loft of a business premises made to look like the subsidiary of a legitimate UK haulage firm.

Along with 17 firearms, two silencers, two electronic tracking devices, a radio and a glove were found.
