Following Green Party leader Eamon Ryan’s call for further clarity regarding Minister for Agriculture Barry Cowen’s drink-driving ban….
Tánaiste, Leo Varadkar said:
“I’m sure Mr [Barry] Cown will answer any more questions that are pertinent, more important is that he has made a complaint to the gardaí about this Garda report,
I understand the Commissioner has appointed somebody to investigate. We really need to hear the outcome of that investigation before any more steps are taken.”
