Claire Byrne had every intention of getting an early night in preparation for her new role on RTÉ's Radio 1 Today show when the so-called 'Golfgate' scandal broke. And like the rest of the country, she says: "I couldn't leave the phone down. It was 12.40 when I was going to sleep."

She says she went through a range of emotions - "shock, disbelief and anger" - and describes it as "a kick in the teeth" to people who played their part.
