No agreement among party leaders in how to deal with Supreme Court Judge Seamus Woulfe controversy

There’s been no agreement among party leaders about how to deal with the controversy surrounding Supreme Court Judge Seamus Woulfe.

A two-hour meeting has concluded with opposition leaders now seeking their own independent legal advice.

The room was divided on what to do next with a number of options being discussed – including taking no action on the dispute in the judiciary.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has been asked to seek further correspondence between Chief Justice Frank Clarke and Mr Justice Seamus Woulfe before a decision is made on whether the Oireachtas will act.
