Editorial: Bye bye to Bertie's car

FORMER Taoiseach Bertie Ahern is set to lose his garda-driven State car. It's part of a plan to save €4m by removing official cars from former Taoisigh and presidents.

Mr Ahern does not hold a driving licence after being ferried around by a State car for the past 20 years.

Many would argue he did not deserve it once he departed the office of Taoiseach.
