Apparently the rules on declaring interests mean you don’t have to declare things like this…
Junior Minister Frank Fahey has not declared an interest in a $1m-valued US property on the Dail register of interests.
The property (equivalent to €0.83m) is held by a US company in which he is a shareholder.
Mr Fahey has declared interests in other properties held by the same company.
An Irish Independent inquiry has found the Junior Justice Minister has amassed a multi-million euro property empire across the globe in either his own name or in partnership with relatives or business associates.
Many of his 20-plus properties were purchased in the US, Europe and Ireland with his wife and a company called Sage Developments.
But the former teacher-turned-politician has not declared his interest in a €1m six-bedroom house in Massachusetts on the Dail register of interests.
