Tom Gilmartin -Key Planning Tribunal Witness -dies and is buried
Tom Gilmartin, the Sligo born developer who made his fortune in England and returned to Ireland in the 1980s to do something here ran into the wall of corruption and greed and refused to bow to the FF and FG gobeens, died this week and was buried on Tuesday Nov 26th.
Most the mainstream press today (Weds) gave coverage to his death and funeral and as rightly pointed out there were no comments from within the ranks of the government or the main political parties.
Tom Gilmartin spoke out about the corruption he encountered in the system. His evidence to the planning tribunal opened up an ugly seam of patronage and payback involving individuals at the highest levels of public and business life in Ireland. And they didn’t like it.
This was back in the days when Bertie Ahern was Finance Minister and yet claimed he didn't have a bank account and when asked about IR£;25,000 claimed he won it at the (horse) races. Likewise Padraig -arrogant -Flynn was brought to heal as described in an article earlier in the year in The Journal titled: The who’s who of the Mahon Tribunal
http://www.thejournal.ie/the-whos-who-of-the-mahon-trib...2013/ they write
The property developer said that he gave a cheque for IR£50,000 to Flynn who was then Environment Minister during a period when he was trying to develop a shopping centre in west Dublin – a development which later became Liffey Valley.
