Deputy Tuffy commented, "Following Tuesday evening's BBC Spotlight programme, Mairia Cahill's story and quest for justice has been a major news story. The trauma she has suffered and the questions that it raises for the republican movement are in the public interest, especially as they concern the leader of a party in Dail Eireann."
Committee Chairman John McGuinness TD says: "Tomorrow's meeting will see the PAC examine the Special Report No 82, which highlights the difficulties encountered by the C&AG audit over a number of years in relation to the six Fishery Harbour Centres. The Report concludes that income is not being maximised in the centres, with the Exchequer still funding 75% of day-to-day and capital costs. The Committee will be keen to explore why parking fees, rental income and some statutory harbour fees are not being charged at some centres."
urges the Labour leader to stand on a picket line and support NHS workers because "praising nurses as angels doesn't pay the bills and undermines care"
"I am delighted to see Dell announcing 50 new jobs at their headquarters in Cherrywood Business Park, with the establishment of a Commerce Services R&D Centre. This centre will drive the expansion of Dell's online activities - making it easier for customers to do business with Dell online."
