You may remember when the Governor of the Central Bank Patrick Honohan attended the Oireachtas Finance Committee on Wednesday he seemed to downplay the significance of the Anglo Tapes, saying the Central Bank had not found any new issues relating to suspected criminal offences following its examination of the Anglo Tapes.This response caused frustration and anger among the Finance Committee members and it seems has forced Honohan and the Central Bank to change their opinion.Sean was joined on the line by Fionnan Sheahan Political Editor with the Irish Independent.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2013/0927/476779-today-with-sean-o-rourke-friday-27-september-2013/?clipid=1319732
