A historical location in its own right, Dublin Castle has also been a place of great significance in the lengthy career of the former Taoiseach Charles Haughey.
Formerly the seat of British rule in Ireland, Dublin Castle has always played a central role in the affairs of the state. The castle has also played a pivotal place in the career of former statesman Charles Haughey. From numerous meetings with Margaret Thatcher to celebrations of Ireland's presidency of the European Union, Charles Haughey played a central role. However a succession of tribunals - the McCracken, Flood, and Moriarty, have all tainted his relationship with Dublin Castle.
This RTÉ News report by Flor Mac Carthy shows Charles Haughey arriving at Dublin Castle to give evidence to the Moriarty Tribunal, officially known as the Tribunal of Inquiry into certain Payments to Politicians and Related Matters.
