This is the submission made by Denis O’Brien to the High Court in his case against the Clerk of Dáil Eireann, the members of the CPP, Ireland and the Attorney General.
Given recent stories about Console, we publish below the annual accounts for Console for 2013 and the 2012 accounts (along side the re-submitted 2012 accounts)
2012 accounts (and re-submitted accounts):
In January 2013, Deputy Clare Daly, TD for the Dublin North constituency, made a complaint to GSOC, arising from her arrest on 29 January. Significant aspects of her complaint concerned the alleged unlawful disclosure of information to the media, both about the fact of her arrest and about whom she requested to be called at the time.
…while it is not possible to state that this information was released by a particular Garda or any other identifiable person, there does appear to be sufficient evidence to state, on the balance of probabilities, that some of the detail relating to Deputy Daly’s arrest emanated from within the Garda Síochána organisation and were made available to the media in an unauthorised manner.
The Ombudsman Commission is of the view that Deputy Daly was entitled to the presumption of innocence and that she had a right to privacy. These rights appear to have been infringed by the release of such information.
Gene Kerrigan opinion piece.
Here is the report in full:
Here it is – The Commission of Investigation Certain Matters Relative to the Cavan Monaghan Division of the Garda Síochána – Final Report. Coincidentally, the Minister for Justice is apparently out of the country. The report was somewhat readable, but we’ve applied an additional OCR process just in case.
This was made available as a scanned/photo PDF, but as usual we subjected it to an OCR process to make it more searchable.
This is a searchable version of the just published second interim report of IBRC/Siteserv Commission of Investigation. It’s also a Friday night newsdump.

Here is the Fennelly Report in a searchable PDF and weighing in at just 13Mb. (Your public servants decided it was wise to place a 90MB scanned image PDF of the report on two websites, making the report largely unavailable and unsearchable)
From the archives. This is a statutory declaration by businessman Denis O’Brien outlining his donations to Fine Gael in 1999 and 2000. It shows individual donations to Cllr Louise Cosgrove, Richard Bruton and Jimmy Deenihan. There was also a £50,000 donation to Fine Gael via then leader John Bruton.
The total over both years was £4,499 and £50,840 respectively.
Of course we assert no claim of malfeasance on the part of the donor or the recipients.
This is the second affidavit of RTE Business Editor David Murphy in the case of Denis O’Brien vs RTE.
