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).

    Judge tells MC Cann ” I’m not an idiot….I’ve been sitting here for almost 90 days….I know an awful lot of people haven’t told me the truth”.
    A stark statement indeed.

    Ironic really if you think about it he was appointed to find the truth by a government who sought to suppress the truth at any cost and then he is throughout this Tribunal calls for people to fulfill their patriotic duties in coming forward with the truth when he makes findings in the absence of all the facts
