The IRA launders money in detergent boxes


"Kelly said officers found 94,000 euros ($122,000) in allegedly laundered euro notes hidden in a detergent box in a backpack, along with six cell phones. He said the cash 'was part of a money-laundering operation on behalf of the IRA.'"

Gotta love Irish irony. If the IRA only could figure out a way to drink Bushmills after they carried out a terrorist attack, their sense of irony would be complete.


  • Seth,
    We Irish enjoy our irony.

    It's easier to make songs that way:

    "We wash cellphones and money together/ in laundry soap, so its light as a feather/ If you get the right soap you don't have to scrub/ Now grab the clean money and meet me at the pub."
