TAOISEACH ENDA KENNY declined to answer questions about the controversy surrounding the Garda Commissioner at an event in Dublin today, saying the matter will be discussed at Cabinet tomorrow.

Arriving at the Radiodays conference at the Convention Centre in Dublin today, Kenny said that it was “a really important day” for such a conference.

TV3′s Ursula Halligan asked if Martin Callinan should not apologise to the whistleblowers as soon as possible, but Kenny declined to answer the question, saying those matters will be dealt with tomorrow.

“We’ll discuss it at the Cabinet meeting tomorrow and we’ll see how we get on,” he said.

After delivering his speech at the event, he again declined to answer reporters questions, saying: “Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.”
