For all we have read and heard about Denis O'Brien's loans, we still know, really know, almost nothing.

Mr O'Brien successfully argued in court that we're not entitled to know much, but even he cannot be happy with the situation we have ended up with.

A significant section of the public is certainly unsatisfied and is unlikely to gain much joy later this year because it is a safe bet that the Commission of Investigation won't disclose details the High Court ruled are protected.
