THE brother of the late Tony Gregory has criticised Independent TD Maureen O’Sullivan over a claim contained in her election literature.

Ms O’Sullivan, a Dublin Central TD, has told voters she served as Mr Gregory’s director of elections prior to his death.

She admitted that this is incorrect and she in fact served as an election agent for Mr Gregory.

But the claim has infuriated the late TD’s brother, Noel Gregory, who is supporting independent councillor Christy Burke ahead of next week’s election.

“She never served as Tony's director of elections. It is disingenuous.” Mr Gregory said. Ms O’Sullivan accused Mr Gregory of “splitting hairs”, adding that the row is over a choice of words.

“What Noel is doing here is unnecessary and upsetting,” Ms O’Sullivan added.
