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.
Mary O'Rourke has also said he is not a relation

I was looking at this in the Times yesterday. Do we need any more proof that FÁS is rotten to the core and packed with Fianna Fáil cronies who are living high on the hog from public money. There was also a feature on a crony PR firm who have made a fortune from overcharging FÁS for events

Greg Craig is the guy they have to crack, he must be feeling very delicate at the moment and lonely, if a wedge is placed between him and Molloy, Craig will have to sing as Biffo is protecting Molloy, up to now.

Craig is still claiming his salary of €112,000 per annum despite the scandals rocking FÁS. You can really go far in this country as a full-time FF crony

Craig has been shifted sideways and is now got something to do with the swine flu strategy kinda ironic given that he has been dealing with the two legged variety at FF for years now.

They are all afraid Craig will start to sing and this move is to keep him sweet, they do not want him in front of PAC.

BTW have they found the missing "raffle" car yet ?

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.

Greg Craig has been asked to attend but he is stalling again, more and more he looks like the key to a lot of problems, he should be dragged in and if required move him on to a Court.

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.

Can you ask Greg when and if he will be attending ?

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.

Brian Lenihan was married to Ann Devine. Pretty sure this guy isnt related on that side.

So dont think there is any possibility of them being first cousins.

Greg Craig refuses Committee's invitation to attend, what a surprise, time to send the keystones in and proper questioning and answers,

Craig is laughing at taxpayers.
