Jailed gangland fixer Johnny Morrissey (62), who was arrested on money laundering charges in Spain last week, paid tens of thousands of pounds to the Provisional IRA in protection money during the 1990s, the Irish Independent has learned.

A senior IRA figure who has been named as one of the organisers of the Birmingham pub bombings of 1974 was the man who collected the cash from the suspected cartel money launderer, sources said. The pair were monitored during their meetings by undercover gardaí.
