The Mick Clifford Podcast: Noel Baker - A scam for the ages

Mick Clifford Podcast - Noel Baker: Former solicitors Keith Flynn and Lyndsey Clarke outside Cork District court last year. The court heard that Clarke has suffered from depression in the past, while Flynn, following his striking from the roll of solicitors, was subsequently declared bankrupt in January 2017.

This week a married couple, both solicitors, were jailed for an elaborate fraud that robbed banks of credit unions of at least €400,000.

The Irish Examiner’s Noel Baker reported on the story for the newspaper and he tells the podcast of their rise and fall.
