Big News today as James "Whitey" Bulger who featured in our Mobs Mhericea series was dramatically captured by the FBI on a swoop in Santa Monica in California. Rumours of Bulger's whereabouts had been circulating for years but no-one really knew where he was. It had even been reported that he was living near Abú Media in County Galway. We even hoped he might have called in to say "good job on the film guys!"
The phones have been hopping all day with requests to go on radio and news to talk about him and what we knew from the filming so Dathai Keane the director has been on TodayFM among other shows telling what he knows. (Listen here to a podcast http://audio.todayfm.com/1235837.wav )
Bulger was still on the FBI Top Ten most wanted list and had only been knocked off top spot by Osama Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers in NY City.
We are now eagerly awaiting reports to see what he might tell authorities in a pleas bargain and who may or may not literally have some skeletons in what closets! If we hear more from our contacts in Boston ºwe will post it here for ye all.
