FF dynasties at war over failed legacy
Public now seeing the extent to which Cowen and Lenihan distrusted each other as the Banking Inquiry hots up, writes Daniel McConnell
Last Thursday, as the sun shone down on the Leinster House plinth, two great Fianna Fail warring dynasties came face to face.
Former minister Conor Lenihan was ambling through the complex until he stopped and came into contact with Barry Cowen, sitting party TD and brother of former Taoiseach Brian.
"Who is that, ah, it is the man from the midlands," said Lenihan as he approached.
