Flood Tribunal to resume

The Flood Tribunal is due to resume in Dublin Castle this morning.

The Flood Tribunal is due to resume in Dublin Castle this morning.

Building developers Tom Brennan and Joe McGowan are due to be questioned about a cheque for £15,000 given to Ray Burke in 1974.

The cheque was listed in their accounts as being "for planning matters".

The pair were awarded compensation of £1.9m after Dublin County Council refused to grant them planning permission for a site at Mountgorry in Swords, Co Dublin.

The 90-acre site was subsequently sold for development and is now owned by Thomas and Michael Bailey, who have already testified to the tribunal.
