Catherine Murphy used Dail privilege today to raise details about businessman Denis O’Brien’s financial affairs with IBRC which were the subject of a recent High Court injunction.

Mr O’Brien successfully stopped RTE from broadcasting the details which Ms Murphy raised in the Dail.

The businessman was joined by IBRC in his case against the national broadcaster.

Ms Murphy comments were made as she sought to put a bill before the Dail, which would give the Comptroller and Auditor General the power to audit IBRC.

She noted that Taoiseach Enda Kenny suggested the C&AG should investigate IBRC’s sale of Siteserv to Mr O’Brien.

Special liquidator Kieran Wallace is currently heading an investigation into the Siteserv sale and other IBRC transactions.
