What? Did the Gardai get a junket to Portugal????

Seriously though, was this just an attempt to get a look at his Gaff? What did they think they would achieve? It is widely known that he spends precious little time in this country.

So 400 turned out to be 30.

Looks like the protest organisers are from Seanie's school of shrinking numbers.

It's the people who will be paying for the bank bail-out holding a peaceful protest as they are entitled to do. It will achieve more than if they said nothing at all.

Seanie might redeem himself by a Bishop Casey type sabbatical wherein he could reconstruct himself.
We are known to be suckers for the contrite. That's very well established. Once the wrongdoer has eaten
enough of the humble crow pie, we will remove it and give him a black forest gateau again.
It's the Catholic thing methinks.........go enjoy yourself if you must but don't forget
to confess it and seek forgiveness and all will end up well.

That kind of protest outside the empty house will achieve nothing, honestly.

I dont know how true the story is, but this is the kind of thing that gets results:

Fitz went to a restaurant shortly after Anglo fell into complete disgrace. The punters in the restaurant complained about his presence and he was asked to leave.

This is what will get these types and make change. Only when they are truly social pariahs will they get the message. No amount of whinging on boards or newspapers will force change. While we whinge and moan on boards like this, people brown nose them to their face and they derive pleasure from it and can believe that everyone loves them.

Only when they are truly shunned in public to their faces will they change their tune. Good ould Seannie is off in Portugal today reading this story and laughing at each everyone of those protesters.

No harm in these protests. If enough people partake in them it may very well put enough pressure on the government to eventually throw the coconut in jail. Pity to hear so few turned out. Are the right to work crowd gonna have a few more of these like they did the marches on the dail earlier in the year?

+1. Good for them highlighting the corruption in this country in a peaceful way.

A source close to the FitzPatricks confirmed they were abroad, believed to be in a property owned by the family.

The protest, organised by the Right to Work campaign, began on the main street in Greystones, Co Wicklow. Outside the gates of FitzPatrick's home, James O'Toole, chairman of the campaign, said the protest was not just about the now-bankrupt banker, but about the upper classes who had escaped financial pain.
First of all, you don't have a right to work. Second of all, you could have used the time you spent travelling to an empty house to be looking for work. Quite frankly the fact that they weren't smart enough to find out if the person they were picketing was even in the country and then miscounted their expected numbers by 1300% says a lot.

People marching on the home of the person most responsible for tipping the country over the edge find that he is at his retreat in Portugal. At least the protest highlighted the fact that rather than being held to account he can relax in sunnier climes while others pick up the tab. An example of the utter hopelessness of the ordinary punter.

Did that really happen? When, in which restaurant?

I seems more likely that the punters were angry he was there, said nothing, let it ruin their meal, and then complained to the babysitter about him when they got home.

Who directed the Gardai to protect Mrs Fitzpatrick's property?

Do you work for Anglo? In many of your posts you attack those who attack Anglo.

It happened. I'm sure there was a thread in here about it.

Actually Pat he is not. That person is Brian Cowen.

It was Shanahans IIRC. The maitre D asked him to leave after other diners complained about him being in there. It was a Sunday lunchtime just after the Anglo bailout.

I wonder how many of the "right to work" campaign have ever worked in the productive sector of the economy.

Surely this will add to the possibility he will never face trial as he wont get a fair one?
