Two politicians and two hoteliers are due to appear before a court in Clifden this morning in connection with alleged breaches of Covid-19 regulations.

They received summonses earlier this year after the DPP decided to bring charges arising from an investigation into the organisation of an Oireachtas Golf Society dinner last summer.

The dinner took place in the Station House Hotel in Clifden, Co Galway on August 19th last, following a two-day golfing event, hosted by the Oireachtas Golf Society.

Golfers competed for the President’s Prize earlier that day, while the Captain’s Prize was contested the day before.

At the time, Galway West TD, Noel Grealish was the captain, while former Fianna Fáil TD and Senator, Donie Cassidy, was the society’s president.

Both are due before Clifden District Court later this morning charged with an alleged breach of the legislation underpinning the laws to control the spread of Covid-19.

Local businessman and developer of the Station House Hotel John Sweeney is also on the court’s list.

So too is his son, James, who is the hotel’s general manager.
