hey, i've looked into this and I don't think this is more than rumour, Craig worked with Brian Lenihan Snr but he is not a relation.his relations to FF are 'blood'
he is related to 2 (yes two) FF ministers (1 is a junior minister)
to quell some rumours. Craig is not related in any way to any FF senior honchos past or present.He was part of a small group who left st johns college in 1979 after having been less than a leading light in school unions&committees etc.A local cumann Eoin Roe o'Neil was resurrected by one of his exclassmates Pat MCEntee and Craig and other ex classmates joined in. Ballyfermot as part of dublin west was a hotbed of political activity (mostly gormless) due to numerous by-elections (dick burke RIP etc) local and national ballots.brian Lenihan snr became the aspirational fatherfigure for FF footsoldiers in Ballyfermot but it was Pat McEntee,Craigs colleague who first stood for council missing out by 2 votes.Craig continued to work for FF (Lenihan in particular) and became lord mayor of ballyfermot albeit as winner of a self funded charity contest.This was as high as his political career reached as his failure to win local election 1991 was a foregone conclusion.He however had become very well connected within FF locally and nationally and was rewarded when Brian Lenihan secured his position.
Just to clarify, Greg Craig is not related to the Lenihans, he worked for Brian Lenihan Snr.Do you disagree with this article belowhttp://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/ireland/article6860375.ece

Just to clarify, Greg Craig is not related to the Lenihans, he worked for Brian Lenihan Snr.
He is due to be asked to appear before the Dail Committee soon
Display Contracts are a stand building company that worked for FAS shows. They simply build stands and were paid for the work they did. They got repeate business from FAS because FAS said they were good at what they did. They certainly did nothing wrong.
Well Brian Lenihan and Mary O'Rourke were two of a family of 4. The others are Paddy Lenihan who was well respected FF Councillor in Roscommon (then expelled from FF under CJH and joined Blaney until he retired) and Ann Walsh (nee Lenihan obviously). Not from that side of the family.Is Craig the first cousin of the Lenihans
