Poor Colm Doherty. He has become a hate figure for the thousands of ordinary AIB workers who are facing redundancy and, indeed, the rest of the country would quite like to string him up.
In fact, he has been portrayed as the face of the stupid greed that brought this country to its knees and the news that Doherty walks away from the debacle he created with €3m has enraged many people -- but not all.
When reporters went out to his one-acre mansion in Howth to get a comment they were accosted by a neighbour who said: "He deserves every penny he got. Why can't you leave this man alone? He is now out of a job like a lot of people. He does not deserve to be hounded by anybody."
