Senator Fidelma Healy Eames of Fine Gael has been fined €1,850 for failing to tax her massive Merc.
She wasn’t in court so her Solicitor told the judge she was ‘contrite’. It’s not the first and we guess it won’t be the last time we’ll hear of Eames in the press. She’s famous for other controversies including a row with a train ticket inspector after she failed to produce a ticket and for refusing to pay €12,000 to a builder for renovations to her home – something about the jacuzzi being too big.
Nice work if you can get it. Having failed to get elected to the Dáil in 2002, 2007 and 2011, the obviously popular Eames was appointed to the Seanad as … wait for it… Fine Gael Seanad Spokesperson on Social Protection. Because she’s got her finger on the pulse of social protection like.

I think the jacket she is wearing in that photo is linked to a new masonic alliance. I’ve noted loads of high-powered women wearing it, as you can see in this photo if the former president when the queen visited: http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&hl=en&tbo=d&biw=1024&bih=579&tbm=isch&tbnid=MkGP-E7hX7ut4M:&imgrefurl=http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/05/17/quote-violence-mounts-in-ireland/&docid=Dvgs9UrEkTr48M&imgurl=http://timenewsfeed.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/queen1.jpg%253Fw%253D360%2526h%253D240%2526crop%253D1&w=360&h=240&ei=juTRUPGJDNSChQfOxICABg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=491&vpy=283&dur=3009&hovh=183&hovw=275&tx=126&ty=142&sig=103242374392193375220&page=1&tbnh=137&tbnw=226&start=0&ndsp=12&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0,i:111
