“Last night I got the first report back from officials in the department, having pulled together all of the different elements of the investigation which involved a lot of interviews and consideration. We also had to get legal advice…It is true that a number of parties are involved – a school, a large food processing company and a large farmer who was managing farming operations on behalf of the school.” Mr Coveney said the matter was being taken “very seriously”.
Simon Coveney in the Dail yesterday on the ‘top school milk scandal’.
“Simon Coveney forgot to name the actors in this scandal in the house…The school is Clongowes (where Simon boarded) and the large food processing plant is Glanbia where Simon’s brother Patrick (also an old Clongownian) sits on the board. Other than that nothing to see here. Move along please.”
