Taoiseach’s top adviser had unrecorded meeting with oil lobbyist
Feargal Purcell

John Carroll was lobbied by Feargal Purcell, a former government press secretary and senior adviser to Enda Kenny, earlier this year as part of a push by the Irish Offshore Operators’ Association (IOOA) to block a law banning exploration in Irish waters.
