Gardaí Send File To DPP Over Infamous Golfgate Gathering


A file has been sent to the DPP (Director of Public Prosecutions) in relation to the investigation surrounding the Oireachtas Golf Society dinner now better known as ‘Golfgate’.

On the 9th August last year when the country was in the midst of the pandemic, 81 people including politicians and judiciary attended a golf event in Clifton, Co Galway.

Golfgate resulted in the resignation of Phil Hogan as EU Trade Commissioner and former Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary aswell as six Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael senators losing the party whip.

The DPP will now decide whether to press charges.
