Fianna Fails Michael Collins to retire from politics

The West Limerick TD, Michael Collins, is to retire from politics. He says he will not contest the next general election but will represent his constituentsuntil then. The Fianna Fail TD was at the center of a tax controversy two years ago after being named by the Revenue Commissioners as having held a bogus non-residents account. He paid over 130 thousand euro in tax and penalties but lost the Fianna Fail Whip shortly afterwards.
