Spreading mess of the Northern Bank raid

Looks like this bank raid mess may be about to spread and broaden. Bertie Ahern is playing down the significance of the arrests at the moment, but Phil Flynn (a man who Sam Smyth claims is a director of Daily Ireland), a director of money lending company Chesterton Finance, has been desparately trying to talk to his two director collegues there, who are currently helping the Gardai with their inquiries. If Flynn is implicated in any serious way (there’s no indication that he is at the moment), there may be serious ramifications for government as well as Sinn Fein. It’s not what Daily Ireland need at the moment either. Thanks for heads up Richard!
