Taoiseach Enda Kenny says he has read Fennelly Commission report in full and stands by his claim he didn't break law.

Mr Kenny said he is consulting the Attorney General and it is expected that he will publish the report today.

The report examined the events that led to the shock resignation of Martin Callinan from the post of Garda Commissioner.

The Opposition has claimed Mr Kenny effectively 'sacked' Mr Callinan. 

But in a clear indication that he feels he has vindicated, Mr Kenny today said he wouldn't be so keen to publish the report by Mr Justice Nial Fennelly if he had any concerns.

"The central charge against me - in relation to the (then) Garda Commissioner - I've rejected that always, I still do," he said.
