Fine Gael's Dara Murphy has officially resigned as a TD.

He takes up a job in the European Commission today having handed in his resignation letter last night.

Fine Gael's Dara Murphy was in Leinster House last night to vote confidence in Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy.

It was his last act as a TD, handing his resignation letter to the Leas Ceann Comhairle after that vote.

Murphy said he will co-operate with any procedure investigating him, after requests for the members' interests committee to examine his expenses.

The Cork north Central representative had been claiming full expenses, despite having a second job in Brussels, and rarely being in Leinster House.
