One of the world's leading anti-corruption bodies has confirmed that it has received Government funding to carry out an audit of the problem here in Ireland in the New Year.

'Transparency International' - which set up a branch here this year - is getting a grant of €50,000 to see whether the laws and structures to tackle corruption in Ireland are up to scratch.

Chairman of the group, Colm McCarthy says they won't just be scrutinising the Government, but will also examine business organisations and international bodies.
