Following this, all donors were alerted explicitly to our transparency principles in relation to the disclosure of all donations at the end of the campaign

    Fair play Dylan. I’m really impressed with all your work so far – and especially for taking the time to do up your campaign accounts. I’m in Dublin SE and FG have my number 1 and 2 – because I think we need a one party government. But you have my number 3. I hope it’s worth something.
