The ‘golfgate’ scandal engulfing the Irish government

Now, it’s being dubbed “golfgate”, the scandal engulfing the Irish government has already led to a high profile resignation.

More than eighty people including a Supreme Court judge, members of the Irish parliament and an EU Commissioner all attended a parliamentary golf society event just a day after restrictions on gatherings were introduced.

The Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary has resigned saying it was an “error of judgement”.
