Ireland’s ‘Celtic Cub’ emerges from hibernation

February 15th, 2009 · No Comments · dodgy solicitors, Michael Lynn

In the midst of the country going belly up Michael Lynn must have been missing all the attention. €80 million going missing is only in the hapenny place in comparison to the €7bn bed and breakfast between Irish Life/Permanent and Anglo Irish Bank and Sean Fitzpatrick’s loans etc. Michael Lynn has given his first interview in hiding to the Irish Mail on Sunday.

I’ve yet to emerge from the hen house to get my personal copy of the interview but from the radio coverage so far this morning it all sounds so familiar! The banks knew what he was doing and lent him the money anyway seemingly!

No grannies lost their savings according to him – well we know thats a load of rubbish – there are loads of small investors who bought properties abroad from him who have lost out, several of whom have been in touch with me. Michael says that it’s all someone else’s problem.

Michael doesn’t think he will be going to jail or that he should.  And if he does go he’ll come back to do a few months porridge according to him. Is the deal already being done?

It seems he’s a bit homesick – ah bless…

In my knowledge of Michael’s back catalogue there is one number from his greatest hits which is so appropriate this morning and I’ll leave it for you to delight in. I may come back later following eggs benedict and a stroll in Dublin’s sunshine to comment more on the latest addition to the fable!
