Tánaiste should release O’Higgins Report immediately – O’Brien

10 May, 2016 - by Jonathan O'Brien TD


Sinn Féin TD Jonathan O’Brien has said that Tánaiste and Minister for Justice Francis Fitzgerald should release the O’Higgins Report at the earliest possible opportunity. Deputy O’Brien said that the selective leaking of the Report was little more than media management and spin to distract from the true content of the Report.

The Cork North-Central TD said:

“The selecting leaking and quoting of the O’Higgins Report is little more than media management and is designed to distract and deflect from the content of the Report as a whole. Those of us who have misgivings about the management of Gardaí and Garda resources in the area are left uncertain whether we have any semblance of the full story; we must have the full Report.

“Given the extremely grave implications of the Report and the serious effects on peoples’ lives that ensued, it is imperative that Tánaiste Fitzgerald present the Report to the Dáil when it meets on Tuesday.”
