From today’s IT, in a story by John Fallon:
A councillor has appeared in court in connection with the alleged misappropriation of funds belonging to Galway County Council.
Cllr Michael Fahy, who resigned from Fianna Fail last year when this matter first emerged, but who continues to serve as an independent member of the council, appeared before Kinvara District Court.
And the alleged crime:
The alleged offences relate to incidents going back over four years and include summonses in relation to amounts of €7,523.91 and €3,702.12. He also faces two summonses under the Larceny Act 1916 and under the Criminal Justice Act.
