Letter in today’s Irish Examiner.
AT the presentation of Charles Haughey’s private papers to Dublin City University, it was reported he left a note claiming he never made a decision or took any action that was not motivated totally by the public good (Irish Examiner, February 4).
I eagerly look forward, therefore, to learning how the public good was served by just the following three activities of Haughey as uncovered by the tribunals:
1. The theft of millions from the State through tax evasion.
2. The embezzlement of large sums of money from the party Leader’s Fund.
3. The misappropriation of £200,000 from the Brian Lenihan (senior) liver transplant fund.
