Who is Lee Byrne's father?

It has been reported that Liam Byrne is an associate of Daniel Kinahan, an Irish businessman. Kinahan has said to have been involved in several killings in the country. He has also been suspected of money laundering and drug smuggling amounting to multi-million pounds. The Byrnes' association with this particular Irish mob surfaced during a 2018 court case in Ireland. There were claims that Liam Byrne was part of the top tier of Kinahan's group and was described as his "lieutenant." With his son Lee Byrne also getting into an accident in January for crashing his car, trolls have taken to joking about him taking after his father.

'I wonder how they met'

The internet is amused as one user tweeted, "Crime cartel? Make it sound like some Brazilian gang running the streets of Rio." Another joked, "Let us not judge her boyfriend on the amount of people he robs, kidnaps or kills, but instead on the content of his character." One user asked, "I wonder how they met?"
