  1. Ahern resigns but aims to clear name

    IRELAND: Former prime minister Bertie Ahern announced his resignation on Sunday from the Fianna Fail party over the Mahon tribunal’s conclusion that he had taken hundreds of thousands of pounds in secret payments while at the top.

    The tribunal was set up to probe the relations between politicians and property developers who made vast profits on land redefined as commercial by the government.

    The party’s national executive had been due to meet to consider Mr Ahern’s expulsion within a few days.

    The ex-PM said that his resignation was not an admission of guilt and that he would clear his name.
