"In my opinion, certain banks freely encouraged greed to come knocking on their door and welcomed business oakley dispatch people in with open arms and now look at the consequences," he said. "You have to give credit to institutions like Ulster Bank, who are working to help people. But some of the other banks oakley sunglassed leave me speechless in that they appear to be working against their customers not oakley glasses cheap with them." In 2006, Mr O'Dolan generously donated an apartment in the Canaries to the charity, Turning The Tide on Suicide. The charity was set up by his friend, high profile solicitor and developer, Noel Smyth, and counts former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern among its patrons.
