The ghost of Fianna Fáil's Charlie Haughey hovered over the launch of former Labour TD Liz McManus's novel, 'The Shadow in the Yard', this week.

Pat Rabbitte officially launched the book and reminded the crowd that Liz stepped into Leinster House just as Charlie stepped out in November 1992. Rabbitte followed on with an inevitable CJH anecdote.

He told how, in retirement, Charlie had met with a prominent banker who had also recently relinquished his professional post.
