This morning.

Via RTÉ News:

Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney (above) has ordered an investigation into a gathering of officials in his department in June 2020, in the aftermath of Ireland winning a UN Security Council seat.

The investigation will be undertaken by the new Secretary General in the department, Joe Hackett.

An image (top) which was shared on social media at the time shows a number of officials from the Department’s UN Security Council campaign team gathered together posing for a photograph indoors.

Ireland was in Phase Two of its reopening plan at that stage, and Covid-19 regulations stipulated that people could only meet up to six others from outside their household in both indoor and outdoor settings.

A departmental spokesperson told RTÉ News that the report should be completed by the end of the month. The spokesperson added Mr Coveney ordered the investigation last Thursday.

    Either the law was broken or it wasn’t. Coveney’s smokescreen investigation is a pathetic move by a pathetic man.

    Hackket may as well just copy/paste Sue Grey’s report.
    The whitewash will be compatible.
