From the Autumn 2005 edition of the Fianna Fail paper ‘The Nation’ a transcript of a speech given by then Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to the Fianna Fail Parliamentary Party meeting in Cavan on September 5th 2005. The headline of “Fianna Fail Will Never Take Risks With The Economy” particularly caught my eye. You may notice too that the statement was made at Sean Quinn’s Slieve Russel Hotel.
