    Jaysus. I don't remember writing that, but it puts Console in the shade.

    For all the faux outrage in the press, I don't see a whole lot of difference between the heads of Irish Water creaming off obscene salaries and benefits and the crooksters in the "charities" - both are stealing from the public.

    Bazza Andrews resigns


    Barry Andrews has resigned as chief executive of Goal as the aid agency reels from a US investigation into its multimillion-euro Syria operation, The Irish Times has learned.
    Mr Andrews, a former Fianna Fáil minister who took the helm at the organisation in 2013, informed the Goal board in August of his intention to step down as soon as his successor could be identified. That appointment will be made in the coming days.
    His departure comes as Ireland’s biggest aid agency grapples with a crisis surrounding a US investigation into its aid operation in Syria. The US government’s foreign aid arm, USAID, earlier this year told Goal and a number of other agencies in the field to halt certain procurement with American funds pending the outcome of its inquiry into alleged bribery and bid-rigging involving suppliers on the Turkey-Syria border.

    Great country

    he HSE contributed more than €1m to a charity where the parents of the chief executive received payments in excess of €84.000 unbeknownst to its other trustees.

    Ataxia Ireland has been in receipt of HSE funding since 1999, when it received €27,934. The figure rose over the years, peaking at €112,558 in 2011. In 2016, before the HSE became aware of concerns at the charity, it received €84,832. The figure dropped to less than €4,000 this year after the Charities’ Regulator sent in inspectors last November to investigate its financial affairs

    Good question, just like electricity, telecoms, banks, airports.... the oldest professions, jobs for the boys.

    There is probably a regulator of regulators.

    Yawn, they (the regulator??) are trying to get back money from Console..... presumably they have moved anything liquid offshore?

    Why does it take so long to move against these shysters?

    It is a very small amount considering the tens / hundreds of millions doled out to these outfits.

    I love the bit about the ex CEO complaining about lack of control....he didn't notice anything funny??

    One of the articles linked to the IT piece notes the duplication in the sector, does the regulator have any role in that?

    €150k is hardly a very small amount if you need help.

    Is Kelly out on bail, yet?
