How Cowen got caught out in the Dail

Caoimhghin O Caolain to Brian Cowen: "Thinking back to two-and-a-half years ago when I walked into that bar, was there anyone else in the company? It is now some time later, but as I recall, it was apparent to me there were a number of people in the wider company and more than two. It is important that the House knows the full truth."

Brian Cowen: "In July 2008, I attended a golf outing with Mr Drury. Mr FitzPatrick was also there and I played a game of golf. That was a social outing. We were joined that evening by Alan Gray, an economic consultant, Gary McGann, the chief executive of Smurfit Kappa, and my garda driver, who also attended the lunch."
