Share this article


Fianna Fail TD John McGuinness is due to give details about a meeting he held with the former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan in a hotel car park in 2014.

The Disclosures Tribunal is starting to investigate whether that meeting took place, and the matters discussed at the meeting.

Counsel for John McGuinness has already told the Tribunal he will say that Commissioner Callinan told him Maurice McCabe had abused his own children and his nieces

 

On January 23rd 2014, then Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan appeared before the Public Accounts Committee which was examining allegations of the quashing of penalty points by gardai – and referred to the actions of Garda Whistleblower Maurice McCabe as ‘disgusting’.

Sergeant McCabe has said it was ‘open season on him’ after the disgusting comment was made.

The following day, Martin Callinan met with the chair of the P-A-C, John McGuinness in the car park of Bewley’s hotel, when Maurice McCabe says Commissioner Callinan told Deputy McGuinness he wasn’t to be trusted.

Counsel for Deputy McGuinness told the Tribunal last month that he will say that Mr Callinan told him that Sergeant McCabe had abused his own children and his nieces.
Mr Callinan has denied making the comments.
