    No Cork publication seems to have covered it at least not online.
    Found this scan from the Dec issue and thats it.


    The article finishes with FF telling Goldhawk "that a criminal convection for one of its public representatives is not something that would necessarily result in a sanction."

    Sounds like they were lucky to get away with a fine given that the bar manager was threatened with a screwdriver.
    I like the bit where Crowley claimed that he was in the pub in his capacity as a Peace Commissioner

    Aye, One wonders what the "items of personal nature" may have been.
    Given it took the two brothers to go down and retrieve in the manner they did.

    Do you guys still get to buy fish and chips wrapped in newspaper or has it been banned as it has in the UK by the 'elf 'n' safety brigade?

    Cowen ‘outstanding’ says successor

    Published on Wednesday 13 July 2011 09:43

    BRIAN Cowen was an outstanding public representative who will be judged kindly by history, according to his successor in Fianna Fail.

    Deputy Michael Martin made the comments in Portlaoise last week before meeting with Laois councillors and party members as part of his ‘chicken and chips’ tour to revitalise the party.

    “The outgoing Taoiseach was extremely popular in this part of the country and was an outstanding public representative for this constituency and for the country. History will be far kinder and more insightful than current commentary,” said the Cork TD.

    Deputy Martin said Mr Cowen had led the country during one of the worst economic recessions since 1929. He said the economic problems had led to seismic political impact here and around the world.

    Mr Martin said FF in Laois Offaly had delivered “an outstanding performance” by delivering two TDs but he said his party needs to change.

    “Our urban support is far lower than it should be. Fundamentally we need to strengthen our position in the urban centres and it will be a core part of the renewal of our party.

    “The next local elections are going to be key in terms of new candidates and having a vigorous party platform that is based on sustainable communities and is linked to reforming local Government,” he said.

    He believed that FF wants young people and women but he accepted that FF had to rebuild trust.

    “Over time we will regain the trust of people and we will put forward policies that are relevant to the needs of modern society. We were straight up before the election. We told people the realities of what was before us we didn’t make any false promises that couldn’t be realised,” he said referring to the small hospital crisis.

    The TD accepted that his party has lost the public sector support because of the pay levy.

    “I think we can win back the support of the public service by affirming its role. There has been a lot of negativity about the concept and role of the public service we have never been part of that. We do believe in reform and the Croke Park agreement. There had to be savings made. The levy was never about banks it was about bridging the gap between spending and what the country is taking in,” he said.

    Deputy Martin said private sector jobs were more at risk that state jobs.

    “The economic crisis has created additional anxiety in everybody’s life. On balance the public sector is in a safer position than the private sector in terms of security of employment and medium to long term security,” he said.

    Ultimately he said, “The unemployed have to the priority”.

    STATEMENT FROM THE HOUSES OF THE OIREACHTAS

    Evening Herald Headline Seriously Misleading

    18 July 2011

    Reports in today’s (18th) Evening Herald about outstanding amounts of monies owed by Oireachtas Members are misleading and inaccurate.

    Page 1 of the paper reports a headline “TDs' €70K bar bill”. This headline is wholly untrue. In fact the actual sum in question for the bar is €7K, a ten fold exaggeration.

    The figure of €70K is the combined figure for the bar and restaurant facilities. The large majority of the outstanding debts relate to the restaurant only; where TDs and Senators regularly host visiting groups and organisations. And all of this money is being repaid.

    The article that appears today is based on information provided to the Evening Herald at the end of April 2011 some 10 weeks ago, since then outstanding money owed by former members has reduced significantly. So the situation in relation to outstanding accounts in respect of former Members has changed significantly since then.

    The Houses of the Oireachtas rigorously follows up on any current and former Oireachtas Members who have outstanding accounts for catering services in Leinster House. The only exception in the pursuit of outstanding accounts is in the case of bereavement. The Houses of the Oireachtas stand over the fact that all outstanding monies are pursued and are confident that the situation will not arise that “the bill may have to be picked up by the taxpayer”.

    Yes, the Houses of the Oireachtas provide a credit facility to Members that allows them to have monthly accounts for their food and beverages consumed in Leinster House. This is not a free credit line for Members and is repaid in full by Members. This facility is in place as a convenience and to facilitate Members when they are hosting groups of visitors, constituents and schools groups.

    Today’s Evening Herald’s misrepresentation of the facts should at least be acknowledged for what it is – an inaccurate and misleading report that is based on out of date and badly researched facts.

    ENDS

    Does that mean, any TD attending the funeral of a beloved constituent can claim a 'case of bereavement' and is off the hook?

    Never mind the "credit system", why do they need a fµcking bar serving alcoholic beverages in the first place?
    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    Looks like the Tribune site is gone now. A shame as there was very good stuff on there as well as some lulzy boomtime property bollox
