    Default OPW pay Gilmore's wife 525k for school site: Tribune

    That works at over 200k an acre for a 2.5 acre site in a rural village outside Loughrea. That looks well excessive. No wonder Eamonn Gilmore had no comment on the price paid.

    Quite right not to comment. It's not news, and it's only be paid attention to because she's married to Gilmore.

    "All sites purchased by the OPW on behalf of the Department of Education are subject to a valuation being carried out," the OPW spokeswoman said. "The commissioners' valuer inspected the site and advised that the agreed price was reasonable."

    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    I don't know about that. The Labour party has never been slow in criticising the prices paid by the government for land and property, and hinting at cronyism.

    If it was a FF TD whose wife while being the Chief Executive of a VEC did such a deal with the Department of Education, I have little doubt Gilmore would have something to say on the subject.

    Sauce for the goose and all that.

    There may indeed be an offence here under the 1995 Ethics in Public Office Act where the threshold for declaration on land is for an "interest" in land.

    Default On a joint tax assessment basis the tax is paid by both parties

    If it was a family member of Enda Kenny this thread would be 10 pages of abuse directed at him by now.
