A man who was jailed for fraudulently claiming the pensions of his dead parents for 33 years was in reality just following in the footsteps of his father.
Don O’Callaghan (59), was jailed for three and a half years for claiming the pensions of his deceased parents, Eileen and Donald O’Callaghan. Donald died in 1987 at the age of 68. He had been predeceased by his wife Eileen who passed away at the age of 57 in 1979. Donald senior had claimed a pension for his long-deceased wife for a short period before he passed away in 1987.
