Mr Quirke (41) had worked for a digital sales agency before joining the IDA as a vice president of technology in October 2015. Why the deal needed to be sealed so quickly has not been confirmed either by Roqu or the HSE. Mr Quirke told the Irish Examiner that five, not four, deliveries in total had been made, equating to the delivery of 72 devices. Mr Quirke said the issue was that the devices required “specific ongoing calibration”, and that he had put the HSE in touch with the manufacturers “for clarification”. Mr Quirke for his part has stated that his company “has at all times acted in good faith under the direction and supervision of the HSE”.
