Bid made to kill James Martin Cahill : Report

Just days after 49-year-old Clare Businessman Anthony Kelly was charged in relation to the murder of Doc’s Doorman Brian Fitzgerald, it is being reported today in a Sunday tabloid that a bid was made to kill James Martin Cahill(right), the man convicted of the murder.

The Sunday World reports today that a price tag of €30,000 has been put on the head of Mr. Cahill in a bid to silence him in his behind bars role as a Supergrass. The report tells of how, two weeks ago, rat poison was found in a meal which was being prepared for the convicted killer at Portlaoise prison.

There are extremely tight security measures in place around Cahill. He is the only prisoner on his landing in the jail and his food is cooked separately from the others.

As he was being led from court after his sentencing hearing back in November 2005 he said he feared he would be murdered in his cell.
