On December 14, we carried a report on the appointment of Mr Declan O'Neill as Taxing Master of the High Court.

We have been asked by Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Alan Shatter TD, to point out that the appointment in question was made by the Government, at a cabinet meeting, and not by Minister Shatter personally.

The appointment followed the public advertising of the position and nominations by an independent body (the Public Appointments Service) after an interview process.

We did not intend to suggest that Minister Shatter appointed Mr O'Neill in return for a political donation and regret any contrary suggestion in our report.
