The judges did, however, accept the testimony of stockbroker Padraic O'Connor, who said he “barely knew Ahern and had been asked by Fianna Fail to make a $8,300 political donation in a company check for Ahern's benefit, which he did.”

Gerry Howlin, Ahern’s former special adviser in government, described the Tribunal’s findings as "far worse than anything I expected or believed possible."

"He told me he was telling the truth," Howlin said. "His narrative is not believed, and it is damning and it is serious. ... His reputation has been very seriously damaged."
