Praise for Gavin Sheridan's hard work

Gene Kerrigan had a wide- ranging article in last Sunday’s Independent.

Everything from Minister Howlin’s toilet to the underlying reasons for the global financial crisis was the target of his crusading pen.

It was nice to see him give due recognition to Gavin Sheridan (My nephew) as one of his principle sources of research.

I know these things because I occasionally click into an indispensable website,, run by journalist and researcher Gavin Sheridan.

Mr Sheridan has an admirable devotion to digging out and archiving raw data on the running of the Government.
