Frankie Goes to Mountjoy

The former government press secretary Frank Dunlop was today jailed for two years and fined €30,000 for corruption after bribing councillors to re-zone land around Dublin for lucrative development deals.
Judge Frank O’Donnell said the public interest required a custodial sentence for Dunlop but he suspended the final six months of the jail term.
Dunlop (62) kissed his wife and hugged his daughter before being led away from Dublin Central Criminal Court by prison officers, and is expected to be taken to Mountjoy later today.
