A former charity director stole over €1m from that voluntary organisation and friends and family while acting as a bookkeeper, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court has heard. Article by Aoife Nic Ardghail is worth reading. Mr Walsh will be sentenced in October.
I have written on numerous occasions, as you will see below, on the scandalous behaviour in Irish charities. Millions are missing and yet the Government have no will to change these daylight robberies of taxpayers and donors monies. I say to John Farrelly today and Eamon Timmins – Why are you hiding? You all know each other. Let’s face it John Farrelly and Hooper Spin the Wheel (600+ charities) are all friends. The salaries drawn down are criminal alone and taxpayers need to know the truth. I repeat Millions are missing and I would put an estimate that £100 million has literally been robbed from charities in the last number of years in this corrupt country. Read the article below and make up your own minds: Mr Walsh is only the tip of the Iceberg.
Article written some months ago in 2018
I don’t have a figure that would be correct at the moment for the number of charities in Ireland but let me make a rough guess as I write this it has to be about 10,000+. They range from Oxfam to Irish Cancer Society to Suicide to Acquired Brain Injury to Irish Heart Foundation and I could go on and on right down to Save the Goldfish and people are getting State money and grants. Today I am going to outline the so-called elite or let’s call them the so-called Mafiosa heads who believe they are untouchable and the salaries they draw down. If these people have any problem with this article please feel free to give me whatever feedback or fightback they wish.
The man with the Cardinal’s voice and former adviser to the Labour party and fixer; now probably on a pension or two, draws down e120,000 pa + expenses from Barnardos. A man who tweets regularly and takes the high ground and who is a golfing partner most likely of Frank the Dodger Dunlop; they sure don’t play with the same balls.
Married to Headstone head Sheahan, editor of O’Brien’s Independent. Avril is a failed politician and forgets the old story – eaten bread is so soon forgotten. Why? Mary Hannafin was her main sponsor, mentor and tutor when she got her scholarship into Trinity College on a back to education scheme sponsored by Roddy Molloy in some convoluted way, Chief Executive to former FAS now Solas (and who we know is no friend of Shane Ross!). Avril when she lost her seat in Politics landed the job as Chief Executive of the Asthma Society drawing down it is said, one tenth of takings of the Charity which could be in the region of e140,000 per year plus they added in a new BMW to keep her quiet. Mick Wallace left the Dail in disgust about this 4 weeks ago and threatened to wear a suit if she wasn’t plucked soon. Well Avril was not “plucked” she has recently been appointed Chief Executive to the Irish Cancer Society so within the charity sector Avril is on the upward spiral now. Her husband Fionn called Gerry Adams (Life of Adams by Vincent Browne) on Dumb and Dumber a Monster (programme some weeks) – I now want to ask Fionn a question – What do you call Third Sector Chief Executives who draw down so much money on the backs of people who donate to charities? Where is the proper investigative journalism and the reports of this major scandals in the charity sector in Ireland?
I know he will be so insulted that he is not first on the list but Professor Hooper also known as Spin the Balls and Wheels is the advocate for over 750 charities and I have no idea what he draws down but people say it could be up to e1.5 million per year!!!. I find this way too much but then again he did a degree in the Smurfit Business School on how to offload taxes and assembling paper in warehouses. Hooper comes on the radar as if he holds the image of Mother Teresa — pure and simple. Well, let’s get real here. Spin the Wheel draws down a salary from the goodwill of the Irish people who give to charities and with that there must come a moral and social responsibility in telling the facts and the truth and what I mean by this is we must be told how many millions each year are literally stolen, squandered, and used for free travel, meals, pubs, holidays, for these elites who head up Charities? All these millions that go missing are well covered up under the guise of organisational expenses and staff payments. Hooper will tell us to check the websites (costing thousands) but let’s get one thing clear here, Conlon who is now in custody in Switzerland has turned the websites and audits on their heads. Let me make one more point transparent here today:- People are before the courts in this country every five minutes from either theft of a tin of beans to a motor car. When have you last seen a CEO or somebody like Paul Kelly, Console, and so many others, who have destroyed the Trust of the Irish people before the courts?
It’s ironic that I began this article yesterday and another scandal has broken out in the Irish Hospice at Harold’s Cross (for the dying). Mo Flynn who I find to be offensive and arrogant is the central character in this scandal. Thousands of euros have been spent on meals in the Shelbourne and other top restaurants in town and on fine wines. It is covered up again by telling the Irish people a litany of lies. I mean by this Flynn is trying to tell us the meals were a public relations exercise to keep the volunteers happy and on board. So I ask Mo Flynn today, who is now in charge of Rehab, and on a salary package exceeding €300,000 pa to step down in disgrace. Yes, I mean Get Out now! Where do we end this? The Gardai are now involved, yet again, the apartment in Spain was sold and one of the staff members at Harold’s Cross, it appears, literally took the money and only got dismissed – no charges yet again to be faced i.e. we hope until now. Charities are now becoming a cancer in Irish society because the Government are giving Irish citizens money in the region of Billion + figures. The people in charge of these charities would not be acceptable in the private sector. How did Mo Flynn cover up the scandal at Harold’s Cross and then land a job replacing Angela Kerins who today has the Irish Government in the Supreme Court (PAC committee). People need accountability but more importantly the every day and every week daylight robbery of charity money must be stopped. This money is given through the goodwill of Irish citizens. I ask all politicians today, people, and senators to stand up and ask the hard questions just like they did in relation to Michael Colgan and all the alleged sex pests when the story broke. So again I say Stand Up!
I want to state one more point before I finish we need a Prime Time special (Paul Maguire and his team) to dig in the Mafiosa and the Charities and we need to find out who was involved with Conlon. We need journalists to stand up also and start writing the facts from whatever information they may gather. We also should have a special Late Late show just like the Toy show and bring in the people who have been affected by the gangsters who run our charities. One that comes to mind is St John of Gods where children with disabilities were left in Limbo while directors of the same so called charity gave themselves €300,000 each from rents of properties that are in fact owned by the Irish people. Again I call for urgent investigation into the massive fraud that is going on daily in this country. I don’t want Ivan Spin the Wheel coming out and giving me mis-information (fake news). I want the right calibre of people to investigate and to hunt down the wrong doers out of their castles and their sense of entitlement. These people feel they have a licence to rob and are about the Rule of Irish Law. I say today that they do not.
