Review of planning ‘irregularities’ must proceed

The Mahon Report is a damning indictment of the culture of corruption and entitlement that has poisoned politics in this state for so long.

Corruption in Irish political life was both endemic and systemic.

It affected every level of government, from some holders of top ministerial offices to some local councillors, and its existence was widely known and widely tolerated.

I think it would beggar belief if this Government did not now allow the independent review into planning “irregularities” to proceed.

The interests of this country will surely have to be placed before the interests of any political party.
