How this tangled web unravelled for CRC chiefs
PAC members 'gobsmacked' and incredulous as the CRC bombshells continued to drop, writes Lise Hand
JOHN Deasy visibly struggled for a phrase to express how he felt about the extraordinary revelations which he and his fellow members of the Public Accounts Committee were hearing from the two men sitting across the room.
"What we're dealing with is a pretty twisted web. I think we're just clipping the tip of the iceberg," the Fine Gael deputy eventually concluded.
Sometimes the loudest bombshells detonate in the quietest of rooms. There had been absolute hush in Committee Room One earlier while the bespectacled chap from the HSE calmly demolished the wall of silence which had been meticulously constructed around the financial activities of the CRC.
