Over the last 24 hours, the government has turned up the heat on Fianna Fail Justice spokesman Niall Collins. The Taoiseach and a number of ministers have criticised Deputy Collins for writing a letter to a judge pleading for leniency in the case of a convicted drug dealer. Micheal Martin has said Niall Collins shouldn’t have written the letter, but said he wouldn’t sack him. Michael O’Regan – Irish Times Parliamentary Correspondent – joined Sean to discuss this.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0620/625224-today-with-sean-o-rourke-friday-20-june-2014/?clipid=1607127
The revelations that the former Chief Executive of the Central Remedial Clinic, Paul Kiely received top up payments and a €740,000 severance package provoked further revelations over the weekend with Hamilton Goulding former CRC chairman disclosing that he was unaware of Mr Kiely’s salary until a year after becoming chair and defending the severance package. Mr Goulding said the severance deal ‘saved money in the long term.’ And now according to Daniel McConnell Political Correspondent of the Irish Independent crucial internal documents relating to Mr Kiely’s pension deal cannot be found. Sean spoke to Daniel McConnell this morning.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0120/498942-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-20-january-2014/?clipid=1398098
