Public Expenditure Minister Paschal Donohoe

Paschal Donohoe’s date with fate is not as trivial as it might first appear. It is not just about “roughly a grand for posters” in the last two elections.

It is about our still-flawed efforts to control the role of money and the input of business in our politics to show people that the system for ordering our affairs is open and properly supervised.

Of most all politicians at Leinster House, he is among the least likely purveyors of questionable work
