Yesterday’s Sunday Independent
Grace Dyas insisted that Mr Colgan had been made aware of his behaviour. “I believe that he was made aware by several people in his own organisation,” she told Sarah McInerney’s Sunday Show on TV3. “I myself told him that it was inappropriate . . . in the Oak Bar. He was aware, at least on one occasion that I witnessed.
“It’s interesting to use something like political correctness to downplay his behaviour. It was more than politically incorrect. I think it was abusive.”
…Ivana Bacik, the barrister and Labour senator, said she was not satisfied with Mr Colgan’s apology. “There is a great deal of equivocation in the article where he undermines his initial expression of regret by saying his behaviour should not be equated with sexual crimes,” she said on The Week in Politics on RTÉ. “It’s a very grudging and half-hearted apology.”
