In Ennis yesterday, three members of the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) were due to hear direct evidence from Mr McNamara's former parliamentary assistant Conor Daly. He was dismissed from his post in 2012.
However, Mr Daly withdrew the case from the EAT with no further order required after talks between lawyers for the two sides concluded earlier this week

A large crowd gathered at the scene but shortly before 7pm the package was declared a false alarm.
