FIANNA Fail and Fine Gael received donations from property developers for their general election campaigns.
The latest documents show that an FF candidate in Cork got €500 from developer Owen O'Callaghan and his wife.
Fianna Fail's Daithi O Donnabhain, who ran in Cork North Central, said he had not hesitated to accept the €500 cheque from Mr O'Callaghan and his wife Rita.
Fine Gael councillor Derry Canty, who was running for election in the same constituency, got a €600 cheque from property developer Michael O'Flynn and another €600 cheque from his brother John O'Flynn. Their company, O'Flynn Construction, built the country's tallest building, the Elysian Tower in Cork city, which is largely empty.
