Colum Kenny: What we need is a quick and effective investigation

'A lot of people are asking that question," Fianna Fail's Michael Ahern TD told me last week. "It is one of the most frequently asked questions," agrees Labour's Joan Burton TD.
The Sunday Independent has been asking the question for some time, but there is still no detailed investigation under way. That may be about to change.The question is, "Where did the billions go?"
Generations are being saddled with a massive debt, and public services slashed, to bail out our bust banks. But who will show the public where those billions went that the banks lent so recklessly?
