McEntee must provide clarity on Woulfe selection

The Minister for Justice, Helen McEntee is expected to come under further scrutiny today over the criteria she used to recommend Mr. Justice Séamus Woulfe for appointment.


Minister McEntee recently confirmed that she considered all applicants for the vacant position in the Supreme Court and put the name of Mr. Justice Woulfe forward to Cabinet.


The Sinn Fein spokesperson on Justice, Deputy Martin Kenny says the facts around how the Justice Minister  selected Mr. Justice Woulfe above the others applicants must be established.


The Sligo Leitrim TD says the Minister should to come into the Dáil chamber and explain how this episode evolved and who knew what and when.
