Callely to face public grilling over expenses

Senator Ivor Callely is set to face a public grilling next week about his travel expense claims, writes Michael Brennan.

The Dublin-based politician resigned from the Fianna Fail parliamentary party earlier this month after it emerged that he made more than €80,000 worth of travel and subsistence claims from his holiday home in west Cork.

The Seanad select committee on members' interests finalised their plans for their investigation yesterday.

And they have decided to invite Mr Callely to a public meeting of their committee on Friday next week at 10am.
