AS I listened to Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin attacking Sinn Fein with regards to corruption, I wondered had he heard of the adage, “People in glass houses . . . do naughty things in the basement.

The sheer effrontery of the party that gave us such selfless, frugal examples as Ray Burke, Liam Lawlor, the Flynns, Ivor Callelly, Charles Haughey and Bertie Ahern attacking others for corruption is breathtaking.

Are they trying to eradicate the memory of the last 14 years, or is it because the contest for the last seat in many areas is between Fianna Fail and Sinn Fein?
