Alan Shatter wants certain critical findings made against him in the 2014 Guerin Report to be removed and a corrected copy handed to An Taoiseach.

The former justice minister is seeking a number of court orders, after winning an appeal over Mr Guerin's failure to give him a right of reply.

Earlier this month, the three-judge Court of Appeal unanimously ruled in Mr Shatter's favour following his failed High Court challenge.

They agreed he should have been asked for his version of events before Sean Guerin concluded that he had not adequately handled allegations of garda misconduct in the Cavan/Monaghan division.

A declaration to say his constitutional rights were breached by the defective procedure adopted has been agreed between the parties - but Mr Guerin is contesting an application for orders for the critical findings to be quashed and a corrected report handed to the Taoiseach.

His barrister told the court that the report is no longer under his control and that it is now a matter between Mr Shatter and Enda Kenny.

Paul Anthony McDermott said he cannot simply quash a few sentences and that his client had no power to re-write it.

A judgement on what orders should be made will be made at a later date.
