Gallery: Former taoisigh… where are they now?
Bertie, Albert, Brian and co. What are they up to these days?

YESTERDAY IT EMERGED that former Taoiseach Brian Cowen is in California to complete a €47,000 six-week course at Stanford University.

The course is “designed to equip senior executives with the knowledge, relationships and tools necessary to drive results at the highest level of global management”.

It got us thinking… what are the other surviving former taoisigh – Liam Cosgrave, John Bruton, Albert Reynolds, Bertie Ahern – up to these days? And how have they been getting on since they were the leaders of the country?
