    3player | Tonight with Vincent Browne - Thursday, 14 March 2013


    Tonight, Vinny plays the extraordinary phone conversation between Michael Lowry
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Lowry
    and
    Kevin Phelan.
    "Key player" for Michael Lowry was banned from being a director | TheDetail.tv

    Michael Lowry responded in February to an article that centred on a 2004 phone call between him and the Northern Ireland-based land agent Kevin Phelan while the Moriarty Tribunal was ongoing.



    The article was published in the Sunday Independent, written by Elaine Byrne and Gene Kerrigan, and
    centred on a 12 minutes 42 seconds phone call between the former Fine Gael Minister and Phelan, during which they discussed a sterling sum of 200,000 – 250,000 which the Sunday Independent says Lowry said he paid to Phelan, but said during the call: “I never declared it”.

    Tonight the tape is played on the #VINB show…

    I wonder did TV3 extend an invitation to Deputy Lowry?
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    The presence of Sam Smyth suggests some kind of scoop is in the offing ...
    The Daily Mail -- the world's biggest cut-and-paste operation.

    All those that hated Vinny,and then loved him after the Ming,will be back hating him tonight.
    There is still a sneaking regard for the "profoundly corrupt" dealings of Lowry.
    "You think thats bad,theres one lunatic that posts on there 40-50 times a day..He's alone..in bad company!

    Agreed. Now I'm wondering why they did not reference this invitation in the press release.
