Disclosures Tribunal hears two diaries contradict evidence from head of Garda Human Resources

The Disclosures Tribunal has heard that two diaries contradict the recollection of John Barrett about a comment made to "go after" Maurice McCabe at the O’Higgins Commission.

The head of Human Resources in the Gardai believes his boss, Cyril Dunne made the comment on May 13, 2015, on the eve of the Commission, but Mr Dunne has told the Tribunal he did not make the comment.

The Tribunal has been shown the diaries of Noirin O’Sullivan and Cyril Dunne from May 13, and they do not refer to meeting Mr Barrett on that date, as he has claimed.

The Tribunal is currently examining whether the former Garda Commissioner relied on inappropriate grounds to discredit Sgt McCabe at the O’Higgins Inquiry.
