The death has taken place of the retired JMSE executive, James Gogarty.

Mr Gogarty, who was 88, died yesterday in Beaumont Hospital in Dublin, after several years of declining health.

Mr Gogarty's revelations about bribing the former Fianna Fáil minister, Ray Burke, led to the setting up of the planning tribunal.

He is survived by his wife, Anna, and seven children.
