Letter in today’s Irish Examiner.

Haughey’s legacy

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.

Yours etc.

Anthony Sheridan
