Phil Hogan is to submit a second report on golfgate to the President of the European Commission within the hour.

The Trade Commissioner was asked to provide more information on his movements in Ireland and the restrictions that were in place at the time.

It's emerged this morning that Mr Hogan visited Kildare during lockdown for a second time before returning to Brussels.

The Irish Independent reports the EU Trade Commissioner stayed in the lockdown county the night before he went back.

A spokesperson says it wasn’t in breach of the regulations as he was in Kildare to collect his belongings.

European Commission Deputy Chief Spokesperson Dana Spinant says the Commissioner is being encouraged to be open with the public.

Meanwhile, an investigation has begun into the attendance of Supreme Court judge Seamus Woulfe at the Oireachtas golf society dinner last week.

The court has set up the inquiry headed by Ms. Justice Susan Denham to look at whether the former Attorney General should've attended

Recommendations will be made if needed to the Chief Justice.
