Mary Lou McDonald is facing fresh questions this weekend about the source of funds used to convert her family home into a 254sqm five-bedroom property over a decade ago.

A new biography of the Sinn Féin leader, Mary Lou McDonald: A Republican Riddle, by the former cabinet minister Shane Ross, examines in detail the conversion of McDonald’s family home on Cabra Road in Dublin 7 from a “small bungalow” bought for €517,000 in July 2010 into a “grand residence”.
