Who are The Iona Institute and where do they get their money?
We’re all familiar with the faces of The Iona Institute, be it David Quinn, Breda O’Brien (both Irish Times columnists), Maria Steen and John Murray. None of these were named as company directors of Lolek LTD. (The Iona Institute is a trading name) though so who are they, what’s behind the headlines and where does their money come from?
In this first part of a short series I speak about the make up of the company and pay particular attention to the submitted documents for the year ending 2017. Next time we’ll have more of a look at the people involved.
