EU Commissioner – Kilkenny’s Phil Hogan – under pressure over attendance at golf event in breach of Covid rules

Ireland’s Commissioner to the EU – Kilkenny’s Phil Hogan – man is coming under pressure from opposition parties after it emerged that he was one of the guests at the controversial Oireachtas golf dinner in Galway.

Commissioner Hogan was one of a reported 81 people who attended the 50th anniversary dinner of the Oireachtas Golf Society on Wednesday night in Clifden, breaking government guidelines on indoor gatherings.

Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary, who spoke at the event, handed in his resignation from the Cabinet this morning.

Now the focus has switched to Commissioner Hogan. Labour TD Aodhán Ó Ríordáin this morning called on Mr Hogan to come forward and make a statement regarding his attendance at the event and why he felt it appropriate to attend.

Commissioner Hogan’s attendance at the dinner has been picked up on in the USA with The New York Times penning a story on the event headlined “Ireland’s EU Commissioner, Minister Under Fire for Attending Golf Event Amid COVID Restrictions.”

KilkennyNow.ie contacted Commissioner Hogan’s representatives for comment.
