Seamus Woulfe shouldn't be forced to resign over the Golfgate scandal, according to a new report.
The Supreme Court Judge was one of 81 people to attend the Clifden dinner.
The Oireachtas Golf Society event took place at a hotel in Co. Galway in August.
In an unprecedented move, the Supreme Court asked former Chief Justice Susan Denham to look into Seamus Woulfe's attendance.
It’s understood she’s found there aren’t sufficient grounds to warrant his resignation.
The report says while the Supreme Court Judge should have not attended the dinner, calls for his resignation are disproportionate.
The controversial dinner has already to the resignations of former Minister Dara Calleary and former EU Commissioner Phil Hogan - over public anger at the breach of Covid regulations.
So it seems while Seamus Woulfe shouldn’t have been there, this report by Susan Denham feels he shouldn’t be forced to resign.
It’s due to be published in full this afternoon.
