Sandra McLellan TD calls on the Minister for Arts to make a statement to Dáil on the appointments debacle

25 September, 2014


Sinn Féin Spokesperson for Arts, Sandra McLellan TD, has today called on the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Heather Humphries to make a statement to the Dáil on her appointment of John McNulty to the board of the Irish Museum of Modern Art shortly before he was nominated as a candidate for the forthcoming Seanad by-election.

Deputy McLellan said:

“This government promised citizens a new way of doing politics including a new era of transparency and openness. However, it is clear from this latest debacle that this is not the case.

“It demonstrates clearly that the Fianna Fáil style of stroke politics is very much alive and well.

“I have asked the Minister to make a statement to the Dáil on the matter and given the gravity of the situation and I expect a response shortly.”
