Irish taxman hauls in €320,000

The Irish tax authorities have secured almost €320,000 (?250,000) judgments
against two people and two companies.

The biggest single collector general judgment amounting to €91,800 was
against County Mayo carpet and flooring fitter Tony Howley, the
Independent in Ireland reports.

The next biggest haul for the taxman was €84,100, registered against
Balbradagh Developments; followed by a €82,300 charge against Darcytown
businessman Alfie Fynes. The fourth and smallest judgment was against
Dublin-based Southside Contract Cleaners.

These are the latest in a wave of hefty judgments, amounting to several
six-figure sums awarded in favour of the taxman, including a €425,000 charge
against John Mulhern, the son-in-law of former Irish prime minister the late
Charles Haughey.
