    Remember this Former Fas chief Greg Craig in probe linked to Fianna Fail

    GREG CRAIG, the former director of corporate affairs at Fas, who is at the centre of the agency’s multi-million euro financial controversy, has extensive links with Fianna Fail.

    Craig, who was exposed as the central figure in a series of financial irregularities in the state training agency, once ran for election for Fianna Fail and was a constituency assistant for the late Brian Lenihan Sr.

    It does seem that somebody should be discussing some of these FAS issues with Greg

    btw might be an idea to add the name of the newspaper to the op.

    Have considered your concerns and do not think you are correct, stories on Greg Craig and the whole FAS scandal have been out in the public arena for at least 2 years, what I have said is mild in comparsion and I will fully stand over what I have stated.

    Could be worse, 40k/year was roughly market rate at the time of the lease.

    Young Michael O'Leary was on the radio saying we should get rid of FAS and save a billion.It certainly should be wound down, baord, top management and their junket department exterminated.
    Some hope.

    why pay market rate for something one does not need?
