Dublin Castle, Dublin 2
The Disclosures Tribunal has resumed with Debbie McCann, crime correspondent of the Irish Mail on Sunday giving evidence into her knowledge of the alleged smearing of Garda whistleblower Sgt. Maurice McCabe.
Alison O’Reilly, of the Irish Daily Mail, has told the tribunal that she was told by Ms McCann that:
“…between 2013 and 2014 that Superintendent Dave Taylor and then acting Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan, told her Maurice McCabe abused a girl when she was a child…”
This morning, Ms McCann has told the tribunal that no guard ever maligned Sgt McCabe to her.
Judge Peter Charleton said it was the first time he heard this from Ms McCann.
Also scheduled to give evidence today is Ian Mallon, of Independent News and Media (INM).
