Gangland miracle man Sean Enright, who has survived two assassination attempts, is the focus of a major investigation by the Criminal Assets Bureau (CAB), the Herald can reveal.

A large number of CAB officers searched Enright's home in Carnlough Road, Cabra, in a dawn raid on Tuesday and seized documents and other material.

As part of a long-running investigation, a solicitor's office in Dublin was also searched but no arrests were made in the raids, which are understood to have been in the planning for months.

It is believed that fitness fanatic Enright (34) was present in the Cabra property when the CAB officers searched it.

"This is part of a lengthy investigation which is ongoing and will be into the future," a source said last night.

Gym boss Enright has made an excellent recovery after being shot several times in the back outside his gym in a business park in Cabra in May, 2013.

Enright spent several months being treated at the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire after undergoing emergency surgery, but he has even been heavily involved in mixed martial arts (MMA) training in recent weeks.

Notorious criminal Carl Wynne, who gardai believe tried to kill Enright, died in July 2013 in hospital after he was shot three times when lured to a meeting in Tallaght.

Wynne (47) was previously arrested in connection with the shooting of Enright but was released without charge after being questioned for five days.

Less than a week later, he suffered fatal injuries when he was targeted by a gunman at the junction of St Dominic's Road and Mountain Park Road in Tallaght who fled the scene on a motorbike and escaped to the northside of the city.


Detectives have been working on the theory that Wynne was shot by the same Finglas gang responsible for the gun murder of drug dealer Paul Cullen in a Cabra pub in February 2013 and numerous violent incidents since then.

Father-of-two Enright has received multiple formal notifications from gardai over the years of an active threat against his life from a variety of criminal enemies including the Real IRA.

Enright, who was very friendly with jailed Finglas gangland brothers Alan 'Fatpuss' and Wayne Bradley, had previously survived another gun attack despite being shot several times.

He made another recovery after being shot six times - including three times in the chest - by slain terror chief Alan Ryan's Real IRA crew outside his girlfriend's home in Clonsilla on January 27, 2011.

It is understood Enright survived the attempted murder bid because he was wearing a bulletproof vest and because of his muscular physique.

Last March, Enright was fined €500 for assaulting a man at Lillie's Bordello in December 2011.
