No further action will be taken against Supreme Court judge Séamus Woulfe according to Taoiseach Micheál Martin.
The controversy arose from the Oireachtas Golf Society dinner that Séamus Woulfe attended back in August which lead to the calling of his resignation.
Micheál Martin stated that the constitutional projection of judiciary was best secured by not taking any further action in the matter.
Although his attendance at the dinner was irresponsible, former Chief Justice Susan Denham stated, after carrying out a review, that calls for Mr Woulfe’s resignation would be unjust and disproportionate.
The decision, which rules out an impeachment motion being moved by the Government, can still be put down by a party from the Opposition.
