It transpires that the Mahon Tribunal has postponed its public hearings until after the General Election. The tribunal was due to resume its Quarryvale Two module today; this being the module that has heard an allegation that an Taoiseach Bertie Ahern received £80,000 from Cork developer Owen O' Callaghan.
The tribunal will now resume hearings on the 28th May, not even a week after polling day.
