Gangland criminal Wayne Bradley has been moved from the cushy training unit at Mountjoy Prison into the regular jail after the Herald revealed yesterday that he had been breaching the terms of his temporary release.

Prison bosses moved swiftly to transfer Bradley (35) yesterday after it was revealed that he was visiting his home and driving a car in breach of his temporary release conditions.


The Herald also revealed he had been updating his Facebook page from behind bars using an illegal mobile phone.

Bradley had been allowed out on weekdays to attend a HGV driving course but that privilege has now also been revoked.

However, he will still be allowed family prison visits over the festive period.

"Wayne will not be pursuing his driving course or getting any more temporary release until he is finished serving his sentence next year," said a source.

Wayne Bradley was a junior member of the notorious gang led by slain crimelord Eamon 'The Don' Dunne.

Wayne and his brother Alan 'Fatpuss' Bradley - who is doing his time in high-security Portlaoise Prison - tried to carry out a raid on a cash-in-transit van carrying almost €900,000 in 2007 under the direction of 'The Don'.


However, the Garda Organised Crime Unit were lying in wait at the Tesco Store at Celbridge, Co Kildare, and the keys the gang had to open the van did not work.

Officers arrested them before any money was taken and Dunne was also detained at the scene. Gangland chief Dunne was later shot dead at a pub in Fassaugh Avenue, Cabra, North Dublin, on April 23, 2010.
