Sinn Fein says Seamus Woulfe’s position as Supreme Court judge is ‘untenable’

Sinn Féin’s Martin Kenny said that the position of Supreme Court judge Seamus Woulfe is “untenable”, while Labour’s Aodhan O Riordain believes it is a matter for the Oireachtas. It emerged in explosive letters released by the court that the Chief Justice said Mr Justice Woulfe should resign over his attendance at a controversial golf dinner in Galway. Mr Justice Frank Clarke made the comments during a meeting, a position he then repeated in correspondence between the two men.
