Taoiseach criticises Sinn Fein amid ongoing Donohoe controversy
The Taoiseach has hit back at Sinn Fein, amid controversy surrounding Minister Paschal Donohoe.
The Public Expenditure Minister failed to declare two donations given to him during the 2016 and 2020 election campaigns.
It has also been revealed he didn’t state his directorship of a communications company in Dublin when he was a senator in 2009.
But Taoiseach Leo Varadkar argues other parties have also made mistakes in declaring election expenses.
“I think we’ve seen huge hypocrisy from Sinn Féin in the last few weeks.
“We know they had to file their election returns for 2020 three times, because they missed out on a €5,000 payment to a UK polling company – only discovered when the Irish Times identified it.
“We know for example that there are also discrepancies in their party leader’s political donations.”
