One Rule for Me: Irish and EU Politicians Caught Breaking Lockdown Rules at Party
Several prominent politicians in the Republic of Ireland were caught at a party a day after the Irish government announced large gatherings would be banned, prompting resignations and a police investigation.
On Tuesday, Ireland's government tightened social distancing rules, including imposing a limit of six people for indoor gatherings - a reduction from 50.
However, on Tuesday, the Irish parliament's golf society hosted an event at a hotel in County Galway, attended by 81 people, including several high-profile Irish figures. Those included Agriculture Minister DaraCalleary, Senator Jerry Buttimer, MP Noel Grealish, and Supreme Court judge Séamus Woulfe.
The European Union's European Commissioner for Trade Phil Hogan, an Irishman, also attended the event, according to the BBC.
Calleary later resigned as minister, and Buttimer resigned as deputy chairman of the Senate on Friday. The police are now investigating the event for breaches of coronavirus laws.
Members of the opposition have called for resignations of those who had broken lockdown rules. Sources speaking to broadcaster RTÉ said that while it is up to the government to deal with rule-breakers within their ranks, it would be "political interference" to discipline the country's former attorney general, Supreme Court Judge Woulfe. They added that it was up to Brussels to handle its commissioner, Hogan.
The European Commission claimed Mr Hogan had attended the event in his home country in "good faith" that it followed lockdown rules. Mr Hogan said that he had been in the country since late July, which suggests that he should have been fully aware of Ireland's laws.
Ireland's deputy prime minister Leo Varadkar said that while restrictions have been difficult on people, "as representatives, we should lead by example".
As the leader of the Fine Gael party, Varadkar continued: "In recognition of the seriousness of this matter, I have removed the party whip from Senators Jerry Buttimer, Paddy Burke, and John Cummins."
