An Irish gangster, known only as Mr. Big, has placed a $40,000 bounty on an unnamed rival’s head in an effort to protect his life.
The Dublin criminal is the joint chief of an Irish drug gang that killed Real IRA chief Alan Ryan in Dublin in 2012.
Ryan, 32, was targeted as part of a feud with criminals in the city over an extortion racket he was running. He had already extorted more than €300,000 from Irish criminals when he turned his attentions on Mr. Big and his associate.
When they refused to give him the cash, he threatened to have them murdered, so they sent a hit team to kill him.
