Gardaí have launched an investigation into alleged breaches of COVID-19 restrictions at this week's Oireachtas Golf Society event in Galway.

Minister for Agriculture Dara Calleary and Senator Jerry Buttimer were among 80 attendees at the event, which took place at a hotel in Clifden. They have both resigned.

According to current public health guidance, indoor events should be attended by no more than 50 people.

So is it one rule for politicians and another for the rest of us?

Lorcan Nyhan and Aoife Barry joined us for The Week Trending to discuss this and some of the other stories making the news this week.
