Coffin company at the centre of a fresh Rehab controversy linked to Kilkenny
A coffin importation company at the centre of a fresh Rehab controversy is linked to Kilkenny.
It emerged yesterday that the charity lost 60 thousand euro importing coffins from China that were assembled by the Rehab group on the Hebron Road here in Kilkenny.
Rehab chief Angela Kerins, her husband Sean, and brother Joseph McCarthy, and former Rehab CEO Frank Flannery were all directors of the company that sold the coffins to Rehab.
The coffin venture failed and chairman of the Public Accounts Committee John McGuinness says the taxpayers need to know what happened.
