Justice Minister Still Under Pressure About Process In Appointing New Judge

The Taoiseach has said there's "no big deal" around the way Seamus Woulfe was appointed as a Supreme Court judge.

There have been multiple rows in the Dáil this afternoon as the opposition tries to get Minister Helen McEntee to take questions on the issue.

They have not been happy with the proposal on the table from the government to do that.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin says it's a nonsense argument from the opposition.

Meanwhile a motion of impeachment of Supreme Court Judge Seamus Woulfe is set to be roundly defeated in the Dáil.

People Before Profit have brought the motion saying Justice Woulfe's position is untenable after his attendance at the Golfgate dinner.

It will be voted on this week but the government and a number of opposition parties are set to oppose it.
