Bertie Ahern Gets Another Huge Digout

March 17, 2008 at 1:35 am 2 comments

Here’s an interesting sight from yesterday on Drumcondra Road – a large-scale digout operation going on in front of Saint Luke’s, Bertie Ahern’s famous constituency office cum sleepover pad cum informal financing office.

Saint Lukes Digout

So what is going on? Perhaps, as Ahern feared at the Tribunal, Saint Lukes is actually sliding into the Tolka (presumably underneath the several buildings in between it and the river)? Or perhaps the digout is an audacious tunnelling attempt to reach Ahern’s infamous ‘safe safe’? You know, the one that turns random uncounted bundles of Irish and English money into large exact round-sum dollar and sterling amounts? Or a briefcase of £30,000 in cash left by Michael Wall for Ahern? Or an envelope with £20,000 in cash left by Tim Collins for Joe Burke?

    Except if the $45,000 lodgment is true, the £30,000 from Wall can’t be true!

    What a convulted story Ahern has weaved 🙂
