Dear Sir, Mr.McGarry, in his last column, quoted Feargal O’Rourke, head of PricewaterhouseCooper’s tax and legal division in Dublin. Mr.O’Rourke opined on the recovery of the Irish economy. I don’t think Mr.O’Rourke, or anyone at PwC, is in a position to comment on anything to do with the Irish economy. They lost that right when they failed to honour their legal and moral obligation as auditors of Anglo Irish. What were they doing during all those annual audits? How could they not have seen and subsequently reported the shady accounting practised by Anglo? Was it insuportcompetence or collusion? Either way, I hold PwC responsible for dereliction of duty and negligence in its performance. Since Anglo was the catalyst and voracious black hole in our financial debacle, I can’t understand how PwC has not been held to account for their part in Irelands financial meltdown. Sincerely, Paul Maher, Castle Street, Roscrea, Co.Tipperary
As a citizen going up as an independent in Wicklow. I can assure you I will support any measure to bring to justice any and all who were involved with the Anglo meltdown and I am just as concerned as yourself. I would hope these people would be removed from all government contracts until their time at Anglo can be investigated in Full and any losses incurred by the Irish taxpayers will have to be paid back in full.

Feargal O’Rourke says:
This has just been brought to my attention. There is a major factual error is this post.
PwC neither is, or never was, auditors to Anglo Irish Bank. I hope you will make the appropriate correction
