Thanks, Béal na Bláth.

That should make interesting reading. My jaw dropped tonight when I heard on the news that the DDA paid over 400 million for the contaminated Glass Bottle site, without having a valuation done.

That can't just be passed over.

It stinks to high heaven, Fitzgerald & Bradshaw on boards of Anglo and DDDA at the time of bottle site sale. You couldn't make it up.

It can when Brian Cowen and Anglo were involved.

Anglo Irish provide much of the finance for the purchase. I would like to know what commissions and arrangement fees were paid.

Paul Maloney, the former chief executive of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA), has warned John Gormley, the environment minister, that the docklands reports leaked last month “will be legally challenged”. Maloney denies that development decisions by the authority were influenced by Sean FitzPatrick and Lar Bradshaw, respectively chairman and director of Anglo Irish Bank. He says they were made on foot of recommendations by a board sub-committee
“consisting of members of high ethical and professional standards — no Anglo members ever served on this sub-committee”.

I suppose that will be the main question asked at job interviews to prove business probity:
'Are you, or have you ever been, a member of Anglo Irish Bank?'

The DDDA is a fine exemplenary case study for the next generation of aspiring entrepreneurs.
