Maurice’s Day


Sgt Maurice McCabe at Dublin Castle this morning

This morning.

From 10am.

At the Disclosures Tribunal in Dublin Castle.

Sgt Maurice McCabe will give evidence in respect of all the tribunal’s modules.

It will be the first time Sgt McCabe will have spoken in a public forum.

He will field questions on a false rape allegation which was levelled against him in a Tusla file and sent to the then Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan in May 2014 – which he didn’t learn of until he received a letter from Tusla stating the organisation was investigating him for rape on December 29, 2015.

Sgt McCabe will also be asked about his treatment at the O’Higgins Commission of Investigation which took place between May and December 2015, and looked at his allegations of poor policing in Cavan/Monaghan.

He will also be asked about an alleged smear campaign against him by senior gardai – as alleged by former head of the Garda Press Office Supt Dave Taylor.

Sgt McCabe is also scheduled to give evidence tomorrow morning, also from 10am.

On Thursday, the legal representatives for the various parties are scheduled to  give oral submissions on the O’Higgins module – which attempted to decipher whether or not the former Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan inappropriately used unjustified grounds to discredit Sgt McCabe at that commission.

    Maurice breaks down in witness box recalling John Mc Guinness telling him that Callinan alleged Maurice was not only raping his own children but raping his nieces as well.
    He was in such shock he doesn’t remember the route he took home. That sacked commissioner was some tramp.
