This afternoon.

Recall Golfgate?

A trial will be held in January with an expected 50 witnesses.

Via RTE News:

Independent TD Noel Grealish, 55, from Carnmore in Galway and former Fianna Fáil senator Donie Cassidy, 76 from The Square, Castlepollard in Westmeath, were summoned before the court.

John Sweeney, 61, owner of the Station House Hotel in Clifden, and his son James, 32, the general manager of the hotel, were also before the court on a similar summons.

The four face a similar summons that on 19 August 2020 they organised, or caused to be organised, an event that contravened a penal provision of a regulation made under Section 31A (1) of the Health Act 1947 as amended, to prevent, limit, minimise or slow the spread of Covid-19.

The offence, contrary to Section 31A(6)(a) and (12) of the Health Act 1947 (as amended by Section 10 of the Health (Preservation and Protection and other Emergency Measures in the Public Interest) Act 2020), is punishable by a fine of up to €2,500 and/or six months in prison.

    I hope the defence calls Seamus Woulfe as a witness. Would love to see his bull plop story torn apart in open court.
