This morning/afternoon.

Dublin Castle, Dublin 2

The Disclosures Tribunal has been hearing evidence from Alison O’Reilly, of the Irish Mail on Sunday, Justine McCarthy, of the Sunday Times, and journalism professor Colum Kenny into their knowledge of the alleged smearing of Garda whistleblower Sgt. Maurice McCabe.

Philip Boucher Hayes, of RTÉ, is scheduled to give evidence this afternoon about contacts with former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan in December 2013 in preparation of a Crimecall broadcast on RTÉ.

More as we get it.

    Significant public service being rendered here. I can’t access this crucial information, in anywhere near this level of detail, in any traditional media outlet.

    It goes to the heart of our democracy.

    You couldn’t make it up. And yer man in the hot seat imploring people this morning with knowledge of a suggested smear to make themselves known.. it’s like he’s begging for a way out in the face of a veritable mountain of evidence..

    How does RTE get away with reporting so little of this?

    If you want reasons to not pay the licence fee, there it is.

      I wrote to National Broadcasting Authority in 2015 telling them Cracking Crime 2006 in respect of missing person Aangus Shanahan was a corrupt programme.
      Two months later , their response was……..are ye reading this…?. I should have complained within 30 days of the programme being aired.
