Convicted drug dealer Tony Felloni dies aged 81

One of the country’s most notorious drug dealers has died in Dublin. 81-year-old Tony Felloni died at his home in Dublin 8.

Born Anthony Carroll, Tony Felloni was a notorious heroin dealer in the 1980s and 90s before he was jailed for 20 years for heroin trafficking in 1996.

He first came to garda attention in the early 60s when he terrorised and blackmailed young country women in Dublin by forcing them to pose naked for photographs.

Following his conviction for “procuring young girls for immoral purposes” he led a gang of armed robbers before moving into the growing and more lucrative area of drug dealing after spending some time in the UK.

He became one of the biggest heroin dealers in Dublin in the early 90s before he was targeted by the garda’s north central drugs unit which resulted in him being sent to prison

A father of six children, he used his children to package and transport his heroin and they grew up to become criminals and drug addicts.

Felloni was also targeted by the Criminal Assets Bureau and local garda under money laundering legislation. He was estimated to have made over €1m from drug dealing.

He was released from prison in 2011 and lived quietly in Dublin where he died yesterday.

Gardaí are not treating his death as suspicious.
