Former Group Chief Executive Officer of Independent News and Media, Gavin O’Reilly

[Gavin] O’Reilly faced some bizarre obstacles during his years as INM chief executive. For a while, he was under surveillance by a team of people led by a former MI5 intelligence officer.

The matter came to a head on June 2, 2011, the day before INM’s annual general meeting, when O’Reilly was followed into the city centre by a group of men. This led to the Gardaí being alerted, and the men following him being questioned. Does O’Reilly know what it was all about?

“We found out quite a lot,” said O’Reilly, “and the Garda Síochána found out quite a bit. But as to who the paymaster was? No. I can only speculate, but whoever they were and whatever they wanted to do, I suspect they were probably disappointed by what they found.”

“Maybe they thought I frequented houses of ill repute, or something like that [laughs]. Probably what they found was me going into the office every morning at seven o’clock. But yeah, it was strange.”

INM said in January 2014 that it had carried out an extensive investigation of the matter and that the issue was closed.
