10 February, 2017 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has said that this evening's statement from Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald in relation to her knowledge of Túsla's role in the scandal impacting Sgt Maurice McCabe is not credible.

"It is alarming that the Tánaiste, having misled the Dáil yesterday, should continue her cycle of evasion this evening

"Her version of events is not credible.

"I repeat my call for the Tánaiste to correct the record of the Dáil.

"She should resign if she is not prepared to do so.

"This scandal goes to the very heart of the integrity of government in this state. Nothing but the full truth and the disclosure of an accurate version of events will suffice. It is the very least that Sgt McCabe and his family deserve after everything they have been put through."
