Mr Callely is allowed on the Leinster House campus and is also entitled to attend Oireachtas committees.

However, none of the committees he is a member of were sitting yesterday, and it is understood he was in using his office.

He is currently serving a 20-day suspension from the Seanad after an Oireachtas committee found he misrepresented his normal place of residence for the purpose of claiming travel expenses.

The Dublin North-Central politician claimed €81,015 from his property in Kilcrohane, west Cork, over a two-year period.

His Seanad suspension will not finish until mid-November.
