This is inspired by the efforts of the poster on this thread, who is attempting to build a wiki page on FF corruption.
wiki probably will not accept it at call, but interestingly that the FF wiki page has a section on corruption whereas the FG page does not, there are two main reasons for this:
1) FF corruption (Haughey, Burke, Lawlor, Flynn, Ahern) has been on a grand (or grand grand) scale.
2) FG has only been in power for less than 13 years in the last 52 years they have had far less opportunity to be involved in corruption.
3) They are more honest than FF'ers (added for a laugh).
The 3 examples I can think of are:
1) Lowry and Ben Dunne payments (lets leave the mobile licence to Moriarty).
2) Liam Cosgrave Jnr (and Tom Hand) being named as being in recipt of corrupt payments.
Corruption in public life - Vanguard News Network Forum[Frank Dunlop] did on 30 October 1997 a the Davenport Hotel within the Dublin Metropolitan District corruptly give a sum of money as a gift to Liam Cosgrave for the benefit of said Liam Cosgrave being a member of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council a public body, as an inducement to or otherwise on account of the said Liam Cosgrave, voting in favour of a motion that Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council resolves the lands at Carrickmines comprising about 88 acres be zoned "E" (Industrial) in the 1993 Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council Development Plan, a matter in which the said Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council was concerned. CONTRARY TO SECTION 1(2) OF THE PUBLIC BODIES CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT 1889, AS AMENDED BY SECTION 4(2) OF THE PREVENTION OF CORRUPTION ACT 1916 AND SECTION 38 OF THE ETHICS IN PUBLIC OFFICE ACT 1995.
3) The FG party itself avoiding tax through "pick me ups"

Another example of preferential treatment (as opposed to corruption) through the "substantial forebearance and discounting" by AIB to Garret Fitzgerald to the tune of £200,000 in 1993 (being discussed on the above thread)
Is there anything in these at local level (where FG have had power)?
