A LITTLE known investment banker turned medieval castle owner is today revealed as being the 'mastermind' behind the Government's plan to abolish the Seanad.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny's controversial decision to get rid of the Upper House came after he was presented by research conducted by a policy review group, chaired by Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney.
