“The cartel has used many different types of businesses, including pubs and car dealerships, to launder their dirty money, but a funeral home is unusual,” a senior source told the Herald. “Gardai have been aware of this funeral home for a number of months, and it is now being monitored very closely indeed.” The operation is a ploy straight out of the hit American TV crime series The Wire, in which a criminal gang uses a funeral parlouras a front to hold meetings on how they plan to conduct business. Exiled Gardai stressed that there is no suggestion that anyone who uses the services of the funeral home knows that it is a possible “front” for Ireland’s most notorious crime gang. The name and location of the business cannot be revealed for legal reasons. However, gardai believe that it is being operated by a 34-year-old inner city criminal who is considered to be both a close associate of exiled cartel chief Daniel Kinahan and a … [Read more...] about Kinahan cartel using funeral home to clean crime cash

After 36 years waiting at an Oamaru funeral home, ''forgotten Mary'' will soon be laid to rest. Mary Begg's ashes are among those of 16 other people unclaimed at Whitestone Funerals and the Oamaru funeral home would like them to be collected before they otherwise bury them in July. Whitestone Funerals manager Janeen Paull said when Mrs Begg died in 1983, her husband requested that her ashes be held and mixed with his own upon his death. However, he later remarried and, 36 years on, Mrs Begg's ashes still remain at Whitestone Funerals. ''It's really sad, we call her forgotten Mary, because her family forgot about her,'' Miss Paull said. ''When her husband died, his new wife's family might not have even known about her.'' Some of the remaining ashes have been stored at the funeral home since 1970, rather than placed on a mantelpiece or scattered in a special place according to custom. ''We would really like to put these people to rest,'' Miss Paull said. Ashes were often left unclaimed … [Read more...] about Ashes left at funeral home may be buried

Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:11 AM EDT Apr 5, 2019 The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms Thursday night, Nike's latest disappointing collaboration with an NFL team seeking to modernize its image. Anybody who's an Air Jordan aficionado — I'm one — will tell you, despite the footwear and apparel giant's many classics from years gone by, the new looks and reboots leave something to be desired with common frequency. Jets brass bragged that their overhaul — if you can even call it that — was five years in the making. This vast planning and creative effort amounted to a slightly modified logo, different font for the numbers and a new shade of green — "Gotham Green" (whoa!!) — hitched to "Spotlight White" and "Stealth Black," which are pretentious names for ... white and black. Oh, "New York" has also been added to the jersey of a team that's headquartered and plays its home games ... in New Jersey. … [Read more...] about NFL uniforms ranked 1-32: How does New York Jets’ new jerseys rate?
