It's not always about the charity, unfortunately. I've seen the 'politics' involved in charity work. People are put on pedestals (or put themselves on pedestals) but all is not as it seems and there are always leaches, waiting for opportunities to further themselves or make financial gain, without a second thought for the vulnerable.

Penny Dinners do brilliant work with the help and good nature of the volunteers, sloughing away daily, providing nourishment for those on the poverty line and to think that greed or the like could damage all their hard work is disgraceful . There will always be vultures and charities can't be too careful !!

Default Leave those Flies Alone

Ken associates himself with anything of media or popular interest.
He has become like Boris, a sort of media pet. When the press want a comment on absolutely anything, call Kenny. His statements, quotes, and photo ops outnumber the actual Lord Mayor by 18:1

The PD campaign afforded him the opportunity to MC myriad events surrounding the release of the Urquart song. A huge choir of volunteers took over the English Market for an evening, and so on. The impression being given that KOF was the main instigator of all this good stuff.

I would suggest that this resulted in his current position as Deputy Lord Mayor. Nobody in City Hall, not even Fianna Fail (who have been repeatedly shamed by that family) take this guy seriously.
But Muppets can slip into positions of power nevertheless. Greased up and slipped in by a dumb complicit media.

The Charity links have worked well for Ken. He has formed some sort of legal umbrella to continue and expand with this in mind.

Cork Charity Foundation Limited was set up on Tue the 5th of Mar 2013 in Co. Cork. Their current status is Normal. The company's current directors Michael Mulcahy, Pat Fenton and Kenneth O'Flynn have been the director of 27 other Irish companies between them; 7 of which are now closed.
It is wonderful to see such concern for the weaker in society. This extends to all manner of creatures great and small. Ken stands up for the dignity of our smallest winged brethern.

If any other politician had come out and said that O'Callaghan's Albert Quay proposal was the 'only show in town', the likes of Eoin English at D'Examiner would be down on him like a ton of bricks...

Nice one outdagap. I hope more people take your example and join in here, I hadn't noticed that one. There must be many. This thread will run and run. It is insane for the Deputy Lord Mayor to publicly favour one of the tendering parties. Particularly as that tender party is a 'Prince of Fianna Fail'. http://www.soldiersofdestiny.org/owenocallaghan.htm

A tender that had virtually no plans published, certainly compared to the detail in the Heineken bid, but that FFers were never Detail men ...
