Judge Pat McCartan: "Pat Rabbitte helped to bring down the Fianna Fail/Labour coalition government by falsely suggesting that there was a conspiracy betewen the Catholic Primate Cardinal Cahal Daly and the Attorney General to protect a paedophile priest. Democratic Left then joined in a new coalition with Fine Gael and the Labour Party. This government subsequently appointed McCartan to the bench as a Circuit Court judge. ( A special "Super-Junior" Ministry was created for Pat Rabbitte to enable him to to participate in cabinet meetings; party leader Proinsias De Rossa had already been made a full Minister.)"?
