ROSCOMMON TD FRANK Feighan has said that his troubled personal finances will not impact his political career.

The Fine Gael backbencher told Shannonside radio that he believes he can “reconcile these issues”.

“This isn’t about my political career,” he said. “It is about dealing with my personal finances. I don’t believe it will affect my political career.”

The deputy is being pursued by Danske Bank for a sum confirmed to be in the high six figure range. In an interview with the Sunday Independent, he said he would sell whatever he could to clear his debts, including his house in Boyle.

Speaking today, Feighan said he does not believe he will have to resort to either personal insolvency or bankruptcy, adding that he has put a number of proposals to the bank.

The lender has started legal action over the debt.
