Last week I blogged about Anglo Irish JCF 1 LLP, a company with an illustrious list of board members. However, following some searches I found something else that looked strange.
According to the Register of Members’ Interests 2006, Senator Feargal Quinn invested in a similarly named company. It was Anglo Irish JCF LLP (without the 1). It is a curious coincidence. So I contacted Mr Quinn about the declared investment asking him the nature of the investment.
Mr Quinn stated:
I’m glad you asked as I didn’t actually invest in it, it was a mistake on my declaration.
I sought further clarification on the nature of the investment and whether Mr Quinn had corrected the record.
I regret that I cannot clarify further for you as I don’t personally deal with my investments and I don’t know the background. In relation to changing the record, your request has drawn my attention to my error and I will now correct it.
