Taoiseach rejects suggestion that Woulfe appointment linked to Coalition talks 'horse-trading'

Micheál Martin has rejected any suggestion that the appointment of Seamus Woulfe to the Supreme Court was linked to Government formation “horse-trading” over the job of Attorney General. He said that remarks by Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou MacDonald suggesting that there was a connection are an “untruth” and she should withdraw it. Ms McDonald made her comments as she again challenged Mr Martin on how Mr Woulfe was appointed to the Supreme Court and demanded that Justice Minister Helen McEntee face Dáil questions on the issue.
