    This has just been a stinker of an Olympics for Ireland from day one.

    Obviously, Annalise and the Cork brothers brought some light but it's not been great.

    In fairness this is a particularly big and elaborate shít sandwich that has been served to him. It's now become a GUBU level event.

    Rio police arrested early on Wednesday Pat Hickey, a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). He is accused of involvement in the sale of tickets for the Olympic Games . The arrest took place at the hotel used by the entity, in Barra da Tijuca. The director also chairs the Olympic Committee of Ireland.

    The state had revealed last week that scalpers arrested in Rio de Janeiro were supplied for tickets provided by the "Olympic family" and worked for a company with links to the IOC members. In total, about 40 moneychangers were arrested in three days in Rio with groups repeating scheme that took place in World Cup 2014.

    One of the arrested by the Civil Police of Rio on Friday was the Irish Kevin James Mallon accused of involvement with an international gang of scalpers. Arrested in flagrante, he was a director of the British company that THG in 2014, had its CEO, James Sinton, owned by integrating the mafia of tickets for the World Cup.
