From top: Madigan Solicitors, Molesworth Street, Dublin 2; Maria Bailey and Minister for Arts Josepha Madigan
“I think there has been a fair degree of murkiness…. The degree of Josepha Madigan’s involvement should be fully transparent and should be clarified.
I think the Minister [Madigan] needs to make a full, comprehensive statement in relation to that.
At the moment we’re being told that the report says she hadn’t an involvement, but then we’re told she was involved in the initial documentation.
What does that mean?
Did she advise Maria Bailey to take the case?
She needs to answer the basic question: did she or did she not advise in the early stages Maria Bailey to take the case.”
