'Fahey college used Cowen to lure Chinese'

A NEWLY formed language school is advertising Brian Cowen as its chairman in promotional material aimed at the Chinese market — even though the school’s founder denies the former taoiseach has been given that role.

In a flyer for Ulysses College, written in Mandarin and handed out at the Meitheal Irish travel and trade fair at the RDS last month, it was claimed the school’s “chairman” is Brian Cowen, “the former Irish prime minister”.

The flyer named Frank Fahey, a former Fianna Fail TD and minister from Galway, and Phelim O’Neill, a solicitor and former Ogra Fianna Fail vice-chairman, as founders and directors of the school.

Sounds like a Father Ted subplot. Wry chuckles from my corner.

Martin is highly intelligent and a great public speaker and debater. Just like the clown who isn't part of this particular FF scam.

At least he admits his involvement in Ulysses

Setting up of Moscow hair salon: In 1994, when Frank Fahey was a senator on a salary of £19,486 per year, he became involved in a project to set up a £200,000-plus hair and beauty salon business in Moscow.
in 1994, when Fahey was a Senator, he became involved in establishing a hair and beauty salon business in Moscow, involving an investment of over £200,000 (€254,000).[12][13] Fahey did not officially declare the interest and at first denied involvement with the salon. Later, he admitted a connection, saying he had travelled to Moscow "as an ordinary citizen to support the investors including my wife who were attempting to set up a hair salon there...the whole thing was part of a regional political campaign by a number of individuals to do damage to my integrity, character and good name".

Frank Fahey--vaguely remember him--he was a cute little fellow--wonder what he has been up to since he left politics?
Think he had a vast property portfolio and other business interests.

Frank Flannery also reckoned he had 'character, integrity and a good name'. Mind you that was probably before he was uncovered as a charity looter.
