Probe into alleged ethics breach in Killarney
Monday, 26 March 2007 16:42
The Standards in Public Office Commission has begun a public investigation into alleged ethics breaches by two Killarney town councillors.
The hearing is the first of its kind.
Both councillors, Fianna FÃ¡il’s Pat O’Donoghue and Mayor of Killarney Sheila Casey of Fine Gael, have denied the allegations.
The hearing is being led by former High Court Judge Matthew P Smith, who is the Chairman of the Standards in Public Office Commission.
The two councillors are facing investigation over the rezoning of 20 acres of land belonging to Mr O’Donoghue’s family.
The O’Donoghues own the Gleneagle and Brehon Hotels in Killarney.
Shiela Casey is an employee of Patrick O’Donoghue’s in the Gleneagle Hotel.
