    Default Celia Larkin gives consumer agency contract to friend of FF.

    Here we go again, in real countries this would be a major scandal, but we have become so desensitised to FF and their nepotism/corruption this is the norm.

    The national consumer agency gave a PR contract to a company liked to a senior FF member, Martin Mackin.

    It seems Larkin proposed the firm for the job and that it was not put out to tender, which is should have been.


    Celia backed firm with FF links for €200,000 contract - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

    Well after WW2, Germany had to be de-Nazified. It looks like Ireland will have to be de-FFuked. Until that happens, this kind of cronyism will keep happening.

    If Cowen was serious about running this country he would scrap this agency, but he wont. He's not different to haughey + ahern.

    Before you solve a problem you must admit to having one. These clowns are in deep denial. Speaking of deep - when you're in a hole stop digging!

    If you people think that cronyism is the sole preserve of FF, then you have very short memories.
    When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators

    Anythig older than 11 years doesn't really matter!

    There must be a long list of Bert's friends in high places. I'll start one:

    1. Joe Burke
    2. Celia Larkin
    3. Liam Lawlor

    Anyone else?

    The most likely reaction by Biffo and FF will be to reduce the powers of FoI further, they consider it to be a pain in the ass.
