Agriculture Minister Michael Creed has called for "closure" over the fallout from the Higgins report concerning Garda whistleblower Sergeant Maurice McCabe, but these matters are very far from resolved.

Labour TD Joan Burton, for one, has called on Garda Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan to clarify "comments made by her legal team".

Ms O'Sullivan emphatically denies ever suggesting Sgt McCabe acted with malice. We now know this was the case. However, it is alleged that Mr McCabe's motivations and credibility were indeed challenged by her lawyer.
