Matelot,

You should read a book called " Trials & Tribunalations"

It's hilarious. All about the Flood/Mahon & Moriarty (No connection!) Tribunals in Ireland. I was in tears of laughter reading it on the plane back From Kerry!.

Not so much a Banana Republic, all this kicked off before Bertie was Tioseach, it started with the infamous Charlie Haughey.

In 1997 Bertie, having been up every tree in County Dublin looking for other TD's shenanigans, established a Tribunal to investgate matters relating to land development. The same Tribunal came back to bite him on the arrse!!

Ha it started way at the beginning, sure the Republics founding father used Irish American and Irish tax payers money to found a family dynasty in the newspaper business :D
