From today’s Irish Times:
” Fine Gael spokeswoman on European Affairs Lucinda Creighton congratulated the new commissioner but said her relationship with Declan Ganley would have to be clarified. “The Taoiseach needs to come out immediately and clarify whether Máire Geoghegan-Quinn as a former minister for communications sat on the board of one or more of Declan Ganley’s companies, and if so, which companies, for how long and in what capacity.”
It’s this kind of “Aha! we got her!” political point scoring which FG seems to value so highly which irritates me so much. Surely the government has enough real flaws without sly insinuations like this? So what if she worked for Ganley? Lucinda Creighton, and Fine Gael, is better than this.
