Anglo’s former second-in-command is now handing out food in the staff kitchen of Mountjoy Prison.
Tiarnan O’Mahoney, from Enniskerry, Co Wicklow, has also applied to work in the jail’s Training Kitchen, to learn cheffing skills.
The 56-year-old, along with fellow ex-Anglo officers Bernard Daly and Aoife Maguire, were sentenced last Friday in what were the first custodial sentences handed down to banking officials since the financial crisis.
O’Mahoney, former Anglo chief operations manager, was given a three-year sentence for knowingly furnishing false information to Revenue, conspiring to have accounts deleted from the bank’s system and conspiring to defraud Revenue.
Daly, 67, former company secretary, was given a two-year sentence for furnishing false information to Revenue and conspiring to delete accounts and defraud Revenue.
Maguire, 62, former assistant manager at the bank, was given an 18-month sentence for conspiring to delete accounts from the system and defraud Revenue.
Both O’Mahoney and Daly are housed on C1 wing of Mountjoy and are a number of cells from each other. It is a normal part of the jail and sources said they would mix with “ordinary prisoners”.
Given his age, Daly, from Whitehall, Dublin, is deemed too old to work. He is free to avail of education facilities and the prison library.
The C wing was refurbished in 2013, from the old cells where slopping-out was standard to single cells with toilets and wash basin.
Mountjoy had 541 inmates in custody yesterday, out of a capacity of 554.
Maguire has been placed in Phoenix House in Dóchas women’s prison, which is on the Mountjoy campus. It is one of seven houses in the prison, where inmates share a kitchen and sitting room.
Dochas had 107 inmates yesterday, out of a capacity of 105.
