Fennelly has damned 'vindicated' Taoiseach
The Kenny camp won the media game, claiming the Fennelly Report 'vindicates' their man. The report is more subtle, writes Gene Kerrigan
The Fennelly Commission Interim Report lays out what Enda Kenny said and what he did, and it's damning.
In listing his conclusions, the former judge was faced with describing the Taoiseach as either a teller of untruths or a fool. He chose to depict the Taoiseach as a fool.
"The Commission," he wrote "accepts that the Taoiseach did not intend to put pressure on the Garda Commissioner to retire."
