Appointment of interest…

IN Dublin, it’s been revealed that the new SIPTU public relations job went to ex-investigative journo Frank Connolly, brother of Colombia 3 translator and international birdwatcher Niall. Failed Irish justice minister Michael McDowell claimed Frank had sought for a passport in a false name and travelled to Colombia, though it was never proved. Looks like a vote of confidence from the union in Connolly.
