Just came across this surprisingly tough interview Micheal Martin got with TV3's Ireland AM crew during the 2011 General Election campaign:
So, Why Did That Money End Up In Your Wife’s Bank Account, Mr Martin? | Broadsheet.ie
So has Micheal ever actually given a proper account for the £6500 pounds he received from O'Callaghan which found its way to his wife's account?
In the above interview he said:And is his denial of ever meeting O'Callaghan with Bertie credible?We showed the receipts – we didn’t have the full receipts, but we showed the receipts
When it was put to him that the meeting was recorded in Bertie's ministerial diary he said:I never had a meeting with Bertie and Owen O’Callaghan
His answer above is almost Bertiesque in its obfuscation.But it wasn’t you see even the tribunal itself didn’t seem to be going into... I don’t want to be going into this because it’s based on the report..... didn’t seem to be too clear about it.... never any indication in advance that that was going to be raised.... I certainly didn’t…
FF are on the way back, it seems, under the leadership of MM, but will this come back to haunt him closer to an election when it will surely be dragged up again?
