18/02/2005 - 6:23:20 PM

A trusted associate of Taoiseach Bertie Ahern is involved with a company at the centre of a major IRA money laundering probe, it emerged today.

Top banker Phil Flynn, 61, is a director in Chesterton Finance, the firm being examined in a massive cross-border police operation.

He is a former Trade Unions chief and Sinn Féin vice-president who invested in fledgling newspaper Daily Ireland.

There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing by the sharp-dressed troubleshooter brought in by the Taoiseach to handle some of the Government’s most sensitive issues.
