Books: Charles Haughey

Haughey: His Life and Unlucky Deeds was first published by HarperCollins in 1993. It appeared in paperback the following year. In 2006 a fully revised edition of the book, covering his money dealings, was published. These came to light as a result of the discovery that the supermarket boss, Ben Dunne, had given more than £1 million to Charles Haughey. This was investigated first by Judge Gerard Buchanan, then by Judge Brian McCracken in the McCracken Tribunal. Following this there were tow further Tribunals dealing with Charles Haughey’s financial affairs, the Moriarty Tribunal and the Flood Tribunal which later became the Mahon Tribunal. The revised version, simply called Charles Haughey, was published in 2006 by the Irish Independent. This is the version used here.
