    Sure, the National Roads Authority and Irish Rail - what would those old things want with any expertise?

    So why did Alan ignore expert advice in favour of Tipp?

    Interesting angle

    Declan Kelly is the Chairman, CEO and co-founder of Teneo. U.S. based Teneo works exclusively with the CEO’s and leaders of the world’s largest companies and corporations. Just the man then to advise his multinational clients on the sale of Irish Water. And now you know why Declan Kelly’s brother Alan was “placed” in the job of Environment Minister! Alan can set up Irish Water as a saleable entity and Declan can find the “right” buyer. The..... new owners will have an extremely valuable monopoly company. The losers? The people of Ireland

    Irish Pictorial Weekly this evening revived Alan Kelly's election rap from 2009. Seems to have disappeared from youtube sadly.

    Thanks for that. I heard there was some mention in today's Sunday Times of both brothers.

    Yes, here is the link to the story :

    http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/...cle1540183.ece


    "The €1m investment fund for “high potential businesses” was supported by his friends David O’Flynn and Michael Madden, whose companies agreed to each make €500,000 available.Despite repeated calls last week Kelly refused to comment on the failed scheme. O’Flynn, chief executive of Tolisons Private Equity, said that more than 20 companies applied for finance but none were deemed suitable. Madden, chief executive of Ronoc, a business partner of the minister’s brother Declan in America, has donated thousands of euros to Kelly’s political funds through the years"

    Kelly is getting the soft focus treatment on Miriam's light entertainment chat show tonight. Not watching it but it's not difficult to guess that he's having a very pleasant evening.
