Mary Lou McDonald: How did the Sinn Féin leader and her husband Martin Lanigan fund their expensive Dublin home on modest earnings?

On May 20th 2010, Dublin City Council received an intriguing planning application. It was made in the name of a man named Martin Lanigan. A few days earlier the planning advertisement had appeared in the Sunday Business Post, followed by a location advertisement at New Cabra Road, Cabra, Dublin 7. The advertisement had not attracted much attention, probably because no one had ever heard of Martin Lanigan and because the Sunday Business Post had a small circulation.

The bungalow on the site was empty. However, technically it was still owned by a successful Mayo attorney, Brendan Flanagan. He was the legal personal representative of the previous owner, the late Mary Stafford, a member of the local Fianna Fáil Stafford family. Flanagan was a well-known activist from Fianna Fáil. Martin Lanigan, who had a ‘deal of sale’ for the property, was not yet the legal owner, although he was the applicant for planning permission.
