Fianna Fáil has called for an investigation into Fine Gael's use of State funding during the General Election campaign.
The party confirmed today that it would be writing to the Standards in Public Office Commission (SIPO) requesting the probe.
Their spokesperson on Public Expenditure Barry Cowen confirmed that Fianna Fáil would be requesting an investigation into what they say is Fine Gael’s "abuse" of State events and funding.
He said: “Again today we have seen Fine Gael abuse the separation between State and political party activities.
"The Taoiseach used his appearance at an IDA event this morning to make party-political comments in a highly inappropriate attempt to score points for his party.
“This is the latest incident in what has become a worrying pattern by Fine Gael and its leadership.
His comments came after the Taoiseach attended an event marking 40 years of Apple in Ireland today.
During his speech, Leo Varadkar said that his opponents want to "tear up" the broadband plan, but told the audience not to worry because "they're not going to get in anyway, so it doesn't matter."
Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin responded by saying that Mr Varadkar wrongly used the occasion to score political points.
He said: "It's very inappropriate and wrong of the Taoiseach to use a platform such as the one he had today with the IDA and Apple as a platform to attack his political opponents."
