Ireland’s Agriculture Minister has resigned for breaching the government’s virus restrictions by attending a parliamentary golf society dinner.
Prime minister Micheal Martin termed the minister’s act of attending the dinner an “error of judgement” and confirmed he has accepted Dara Calleary’s resignation.
The minister quit after just 37 days in the position.
Readers comparing the development to any senior judge in India not observing the government’s coronavirus related guidelines and riding Harley Davidson superbike with other people standing close to them, at least one without any mask, will do so at their own peril of being hauled up for potential contempt of the judge.
Martin reminded how people have been making “very difficult, personal sacrifices in their family lives and in their businesses” to comply with Covid regulations and reiterated that the dinner “should not” have happened.
