Pat Carroll, right hand man to former Irish minister Richard
Bruton, is to set up his own financial and political consultancy. In
1994 Carroll was appointed programme manager by Bruton, until last week
minister for enterprise and employment. He ran the minister’s office
until the new government took over last Thursday. Formerly a management
consultant with KPMG in Dublin, Carroll said he now wants to apply his
knowledge of government in the private sector.
