Some colleagues of Supreme Court judge Séamus Woulfe are said to be "furious" and "disappointed" with him over his involvement in 'Golfgate' and his subsequent handling of the affair.

It is not hard to see why. While the report of former Chief Justice Susan Denham found it would be disproportionate for him to have to resign, some of his account strained credibility, raised questions over his judgment and demonstrated a surprising lack of awareness by the judge of events around him.
