CAB Seek To Establish Source Of Money Found In McFeely House

The Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB) is trying to establish the source of €200,000 found hidden at the former home of bankrupt developer Tom McFeely.

A plumber doing work on the house at Ailesbury Road, in Dublin's most expensive residential district, when he uncovered €140,000 hidden beneath the bath.

CAB officers then carried out a thorough search of the rest of the house and the surrounding grounds uncovering more money hidden within the bathroom.

With the search complete, CAB have now begun an investigation to establish the source of money, which no one has yet come forward to claim.
