Whelan appointment leaves a sour taste
Judge Máire Whelan is now a member of the Court of Appeal. At Áras an Uachtaráin yesterday, President Michael D Higgins appointed three judges; Charles Meehan, Eileen Creedon and Ms Whelan.
Done and dusted, so. Not quite.
The unorthodox appointment of the former attorney general has left a sour taste in the mouth for many.
