A Blanchardstown man convicted of holding the family of a Securicor worker hostage during a €2.3m tiger kidnapping has been jailed for 15 years.
Last month a jury found Jason Kavanagh of Corduff Avenue guilty of robbery and four charges of false imprisonment.
A clearly emotional Paul Richardson recalls what happened to his family on March 13th 2005.
Just before 11 that night, an armed gang burst into the Securicor worker's home in Raheny.
They took his wife and two sons hostage and forced him to hand over almost €2.3m during his rounds the following day.
Mr. Richardson, who has since suffered a heart attack from the stress of the ordeal, says he'll forever be haunted by what happened.
Judge Martin Nolan described the tiger kidnapping as a "very serious crime" and one that was carried out with "military precision".
He then sentenced Jason Kavanagh to 15 years behind bars - something Paul's wife Marie Richardson says is of some comfort to her family.
