    Default Vincent Browne Tackles Taoiseach at Manifesto Launch

    Vincent Brown in a sustained line of questioning, tackled the Taoiseach on the £30k issue at the Fianna Fáil Manifesto Launch in the Mansion House a few moments ago.

    The direct questions which included dates, locations and amounts were comprehensively answered by the Taoiseach, who explained to the capacity audience that the funds were given to Ms Larkin by Michael Wall to allow her administer renovations to the house which they were renting at the time. He further explained he had provided the full details to the tribunal including the receipts for the renovations and that he would be happy to deal with any questions they had in due course. Browne accepted that there was no connection between these funds and Quarryvale and no other journalist followed up the line of questioning.

    It has to have been one of the most exciting press conferences I’ve ever attended, with the Taoiseach getting sustained applause at the end of Browne’s line of questioning.

    The blueshirts should be careful what they wish for. There's nothin like a (real or perceived) media onslaught to galvanise the FF supporters

    Any new policies?

    Or was the manifesto launch designed to talk about Home Improvement?

    Stephen Collins said the reason FFers were applauding was because some FFer intervened telling Browne to shut up or something to that effect

    I’d say there were about 300 people there; at least 100 were journalists some of whom I watched clap too. Saw your old mate Waghorne there too.

    But seriously it was an electrifying press conference; Ahern was really in top form, after Browne sat down and the applause stopped the next journalist moved on to the nurses dispute.

    There were loads of cameras there, I'd say it will be on the 1 O'Clock news.
