Fall from grace: Ray Burke

He famously offered tea and biscuits to builders when they arrived at his house with cash-stuffed brown envelopes. Sadly, when I caught up with Ray Burke this week, he was not quite so hospitable.

The former Fianna Fáil minister, and one-time inhabitant of Arbour Hill prison, steered his silver BMW into the driveway of his home at Griffith Downs, north Dublin. Suddenly, as he caught sight of me through his side window, a look of grave suspicion came over his face.
