Surveillance was to become an occupational hassle during his criminal career and he soon devised tricks for slipping the net. One evening the General drove his Mercedes all over the wilds of Co Wicklow with his Garda tail close behind. Just before his car ran out of petrol on a lonely mountain road, Cahill pulled up and opened the boot. He took out a five gallon drum of petrol and filled up his tank. He smiled and waved to the cops who were sitting in their car a short distance away. Within a few miles they had run out of petrol and their target got away.
His neighbourhood now looked like a bomb site. His corner flat was in the only part of the building complex to be left standing. The rest was demolished. Cahill knew it was only a matter of time before he would have to move out, but he decided to take on City Hall. He also got some fun out of the experience. The Electricity Supply Board (ESB) cut off his supply: he promptly reconnected it. It worked fine until a particularly heavy rainfall. Water seeped down onto the bare cable, making the flat live.
They called their boss. As Cahill was coming back down the hill he met Ned Ryan and three of his men coming up towards him. Dusk was falling and Ryan carried a walking stick which Cahill thought was a gun. The cop smiled at his old enemy and told him: ‘Now, Martin, you and I are going for a chat up that hill and when we come back down you’ll have given back the Semperit money. ’ Cahill ran back up the hill. The cops followed. At the top they tried to catch him. They had never seen him so scared.
