Taoiseach and Tanaiste ask Phil Hogan to ‘consider his position’ as EU Commissioner following ‘Golfgate’

The Taoiseach and the Tánaiste have spoken to EU Commissioner Phil Hogan and asked him to consider his position in the wake of ‘golfgate’.

“The Taoiseach and the Tánaiste did speak with Commissioner Hogan today and asked him to consider his position,” a statement read.

“They both believe that the event should never have been held, that the Commissioner’s apology came late and that he still needs to give a full account and explanations of his actions.”

Hogan was one of around 80 attendees at the golf function in Clifden, Co Galway last Thursday.
