TDs Clare Daly and Mick Wallace will keep attending a variety of Oireachtas committees in Leinster House if they are elected to the European Parliament. Increasingly what we deal with in the Irish parliament either comes from Europe directly or Europe is being used as an excuse why we can’t do things that benefit Irish people. For example, we have looked at the situation and in terms of European Union matters we are entitled to attend Oireachtas committees and all the rest. The European Parliament comes with a lot of resources. Ms Daly and Mr Wallace are prominent advocates for whistleblowers and wider garda reform but Ms Daly said Ms Fitzgerald was wrong to resign in November 2017.
