ACCUSED: New IRA suspect Gary Hayden

Tensions between rival republican gangs in Derry city are at breaking point over embarrassing drug-dealing claims.

Recordings from meetings of the New IRA bugged by MI5 detail how the dissident group accused the INLA of “recruiting big steroid-head doormen” who sell drugs in gyms and “none of them have a brain cell”.

The conversations were made public during a failed bail hearing last week by Gary ‘Musky’ Hayden (49), who is accused of directing New IRA terrorism.
