List of unexplained lodgements to accounts linked to Ahern

THE Mahon Tribunal's marathon trawl of finances uncovered more than a quarter of a million in unexplained lodgements into accounts linked to the former Taoiseach.

Judge Alan Mahon did not accept Bertie Ahern`s explanation for the source of any of these monies which came in old Irish punts, sterling and US dollars.



Here is a breakdown of each lodgement including dates, banks and original sums:
