Last night I noticed that the parody video we made filmed back on Saturday 26th March, CACI & The Irish Census, has been removed from YouTube.

It’s been over two weeks since I last posted anything about the census story. Apologies for that, there’s been a lot happening and I’ve been holding back somewhat. The next post will be about some recent media reporting about CACI and the Irish Census, but in the meantime, to fill in some of the blanks, I want to share this story with you.

I interviewed Pádraig MacLochlainn of Sinn Féin yesterday evening, after he kindly called me back following my enquiry into CACI & the CSO Census contracts.
This is the full 20 minute interview which he gave to to me in our telephone conversation. I would like to again thank Pádraig for agreeing to do this at such short notice.
