Less than two weeks before the attack on the Regency Hotel that sparked the fatal feud between Kinahan and Hutch, Gerry “the Monk” Hutch secretly traveled to Poland with four employees to train firearms.
The group spent two days in late January 2016 at a rifle range in Krakow that Gardaí believes was preparing for the paramilitary attack at a boxing weigh-in organized by Daniel Kinahan.
Records show that Hutch, who allegedly planned the attack, tried to cover his tracks by making a detour to Poland and traveling via Belgium and the Netherlands.
He next turned up on January 23rd at Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands – where he was flying to Krakow. On the same day, four other members of the Hutch gang came to the city from Dublin.
Sources have confirmed the group booked at one of several shooting academies on the outskirts of Krakow, where visitors have access to a variety of weapons, including AK-47 assault rifles of the type used by three gang members dressed as gardaí in the reign .
Group members are believed to have taken footage of the shooting range and security guards believe the trip was central to preparations for the February 5, 2016 attack in Drumcondra. The intention was to assassinate Kinahan and his top lieutenants. With the exception of cartel member David Byrne, who was shot, they managed to escape.
The dramatic attack was in revenge for the cartel murder of monk nephew Gary in September 2015. Two Kinahan suicide bombers followed on his own life.
A new book about the life and crimes of the former armed robbery also reveals how Hutch and his staff left Krakow on January 25th. The monk returned to Ireland by the same detour through Eindhoven. On January 29, four days later, the chief of refugee crime boarded a flight from Brussels to Dublin.
Around this time, Daniel Kinahan dispatched two associates to speak to the monk’s older brother, Eddie Hutch, in hopes of burying the hatchet for Gary Hutch’s murder. They denied being responsible for the monk’s attempted hit.
The Kinahan staff phoned Eddie to speak to Christy Kinahan Sr. and Daniel separately. He agreed to speak to Gerry and a few days later relayed the news to the Kinahans that the monk stood by his position – the cartel had refused to approve by killing his nephew and trying to kill him, and he didn’t want to speak to people he couldn’t trust.
Daniel Kinahan called Eddie Hutch the last week of January. CCTV showed him speaking to Kinahan from an upstairs window. Kinahan can be seen protesting with Hutch before charging off.
A week later, the Regency attack took place, which set off a bloodshed cycle.
