THE DÁIL DEBATE on the Moriarty Tribunal report will continue today, after Independent TD Michael Moriarty spend an hour addressing the issue in the chamber yesterday.

Lowry insisted that, despite suggestions put forth in the report, he had done nothing wrong and that the tribunal had conducted a “show trial”. He challenged the Criminal Assets Bureau to investigate him, saying that they would find no indications he had been involved in any wrongdoing, reports Newstalk.

The taoiseach Enda Kenny is expected to answer questions raised in the Moriarty report relating to Fine Gael fundraising in the 1980s. Last night, Kenny commented that the political culture of past years could not continue.

Meanwhile, the Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said that his party would table a motion requesting Lowry’s resignation, RTÉ reports.
