Six controversial state board appointees have been asked by Transport Minister Leo Varadkar to resign their posts by the end of the month.
Documentation seen exclusively by the Sunday Independent reveals the Minister has written to six state board members, appointed by Fianna Fail in the interregnum between the collapse of the FF/Green Coalition and the election of a new government, to request their immediate resignation.
During the dying days of the last government, in what was described as "an orgy of state appointments" Fianna Fail appointed over 110 people to state boards.
