  • Noel Whelan: Don't pay attention to pre-election pledges about coalition

    In light of this week’s Irish Times poll it is worth remembering that a week is a long time in politics, and the weeks between an election and the formation of a government can be both long and dramatic. After the election on June 15th, 1989, the outgoing taoiseach Charles Haughey was seven seats short of a Dáil majority. The Progressive Democrats, who had entered an election pact with Fine Gael, had six seats. There was intense animosity between politicians of both parties. Most of the Progressive Democrat TDs had left or had been forced out of Fianna Fáil because of Haughey’s leadership. When asked about the loss by the Progressive Democrats of more than half their seats in the election, Fianna

  • Denis MacShane: Brexit will have massive impact on Ireland

    To Brexit or not to Brexit is now the biggest question in those parts of the British Isles not ruled from Dublin. The latest opinion poll for the London Independent shows 52 per cent in favour of leaving the EU – confirming the autumn trend towards Brexit in opinion polls. Alas poor Ireland cannot opt out of the debate and today’s poll in The Irish Times shows Irish people want Britain to stay in but back its argument for reforms. The Irish may well feel that if the Brits have a problem to solve on whether or not to isolate themselves from Europe, well, that’s a conundrum they can have all to themselves. But willy-nilly Dublin is the EU capital city with most at stake in the Brexit debate. If

While he had shown an eye for goal in the lower leagues, after his relatively quiet debut Premier League season, just five goals in 34 games, no one predicted he would scale to the heights he has this year.

  • Whistleblower banker Falciani to serve five years in jail

    BELLINZONA, Switzerland - A Swiss court on Friday sentenced former HSBC employee Herve Falciani to five years in prison for leaking how the bank helped more than 120,000 foreign clients stash nearly $192 billion to evade taxes. The 43-year old French whistleblower, however, remained undeterred and responded to the sentencing in absentia saying it "changes nothing". Falciani has been out of Switzerland since the trial began. It is unlikely he will serve time in a Swiss prison because France doesn't extradite its own citizens. The sentencing after the conviction over aggravated industrial espionage was read out at the Federal Criminal Court in Bellinzona. Falciani was facing triple charges at Swiss
