A bodybuilder who has survived two assassination attempts has left Ireland and is living in Latvia.

Sean Enright (35) is the subject of an intense Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) probe.

He hasn't been spotted at his Cabra home for months and is understood to be living in the capital of Riga.

Sources said he's working as a personal trainer in the Eastern European country.

In Dublin, security cameras at his northside home have been dismantled.

It's not known why Enright has left, but sources said that a major CAB probe into Enright's finances was continuing.

"The investigation still has a long way to run. There have been no court proceedings so far," a source said.

The Herald revealed in May that detectives from CAB raided Enright's home at Carnlough Road, seizing documentation and other material.

As part of the long-running probe, a solicitor's office in Dublin was also searched. No arrests were made in either raid.

Gym boss Enright has made an excellent recovery after being shot a number of times in the back in May 2013 outside his gym in a business park in Cabra.


Enright spent a number of months being treated at the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire after emergency surgery. It is believed that his muscular physique helped him to survive.

Notorious criminal Carl Wynne (47) - who gardai believe tried to kill Enright - was himself shot and fatally wounded on the night of May 30, 2013.

He was shot three times after being lured to a meeting in Tallaght.

The gunman escaped the scene on a motorbike, fleeing to the northside of the city.

Wynne died from his injuries the following July.

He was previously arrested in connection with the shooting of Enright, but was released without charge after being questioned for five days.

There have been a number of arrests in the Wynne murder investigation but no charges.

It is suspected that a gang with members in Finglas and Cabra employed Wynne to murder Enright and they turned on Wynne when he botched the hit.


The 2013 incident wasn't the first time Enright survived an attempt on his life.

He previously made a miraculous recovery after being shot six times - three of them in the chest - outside a house in Clonsilla, west Dublin, on January 27, 2011, by Alan Ryan's RIRA mob.

Despite his extensive injuries, Enright was able to walk to an ambulance that rushed to the scene in the aftermath of the shooting.
