During a discussion about the ongoing expenses scandal Fianna Fail Senator, Labhras O Murchu, made what I thought was a very curious remark (Marian Finucane Show, Sat).
He explained that when he was in Dublin he stayed at Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann headquarters for €50 per night.
I checked this out and, according to Wikipedia, Senator O’Murchu is the Director General of Comhaltas.
I phoned the organisation this morning with a list of questions but was informed by a spokesperson that a press release on the matter would be released later today.
The spokesperson was clearly under pressure so I’m obviously not the only person asking questions about this curious arrangement.
