The relationship between Conor McGregor’s sister Aoife and Kinahan ‘associate’ Graham Whelan has been making headlines lately. The news broke when Aoife posted a photo of the two of them at her brother’s venue on social media, which led to speculation about their relationship.
Many believe that the picture was taken at Conor McGregor’s Black Forge Inn soon after Whelan’s release from Mountjoy jail on December 21. According to sources, the picture was taken at Christmas shortly after Whelan’s release from prison.
Whelan is a former high-ranking member of the Kinehan crime family. He was recently released from prison after serving a year for money laundering crimes, including the possession of a €28,000 watch.
Aoife McGregor also kept a photo of her and Whelan as her WhatsApp display picture, suggesting that the relationship is serious. However, she has since changed her profile picture.
In an exclusive story, the Sunday World revealed that Aoife was recently divorced. She had visited him several times in prison. After Whelan’s release from jail, the two reportedly continued with their relationship.
Additionally, Whelan is known to have a close relationship with Conor McGregor and has appeared in several photographs with him in the past. The Sunday World also photographed Whelan in October 2021 line up for the Black Forge football squad.
Whelan was also close friends with Kinehan associate David Byrne, who passed away in February 2016. Whelan entered a guilty plea to money laundering on behalf of a crime organization in July 2021.
Conor McGregor has been photographed with many Kinahan Organised Crime Group members, leading to speculation about McGregor’s connections to the group.
David Byrne infamously posed for a picture with McGregor at a UFC event. According to the Irish press, Byrne was a former senior lieutenant in the Kinahan organisation.
McGregor has also been photographed with Lee Byrne. He is the nephew of David Byrne and the son of Liam Byrne, who is suspected of being a high-ranking Group member.
