‘Fat’ Freddie Thompson first appeared in court in 1997. He was 17 and already aspiring to be a major crime boss. Over the next 20 years his criminal career would be marked by mayhem, brutality and murder. In 2000 a row over a failed drugs deal ignited a murderous feud in Dublin’s south inner city. The first victim of the Crumlin-Drimnagh feud was a childhood friend of Thompson’s. He vowed revenge and led his Crumlin crew in a series of tit-for-tat killings. 16 young men would lose their lives over the next 12 years. Meanwhile, another childhood friend, Daniel Kinahan, had become a senior figure in his father Christy Kinahan’s international crime cartel. Working with the Kinahan Cartel Thompson launched himself as a drugs dealer in Dublin. ‘Fat Freddie’ is a gripping account of the rise and fall of Freddie Thompson.
