A Fianna Fail Councillor has resigned from the party following last night's documentary by RTE's Investigations Unit, in which he was filmed asking for an investment in his company in return for help with planning in County Sligo.

Enniscrone based Councillor Joe Queenan told an undercover reporter, posing for a fictitious wind farm developer, that he would act as a go-between the firm and Sligo County Council.

Fianna Fail's described some of the behaviour shown in the programme as "shocking and completely unacceptable".

It wants a Garda investigation into any illegal activity and will launch an internal inquiry.

The RTE programme also showed former Fine Gael Councillor Hugh McElvaney of Monaghan, and Independent Donegal councillor John O'Donnell requesting money in return for help in getting planning permission for wind farms.

On last night's RTE programme Councillor Queenan, said he didn't want money - but he was looking for investment in an agri-feed company.

This morning Mayo Fianna Fail deputy Dara Calleary said the party has a lot to look at following last night’s programme and he says an investigation will now get underway.

Achill based Fianna Fail councillor Paul McNamara also featured in last night’s RTE programme as a county councillor who had undeclared interests.

In the programme it said he has since submitted an amended declaration of interest form taking account of a company he had failed to mention on his original return and he said another company referred to by the programme has been sold.

Galway Independent TD Noel Grealish was also mentioned in the programme as a deputy that had not declared that he was the Director of a company in his declaration of interest return. He said it was an omission and has since submitted an amended form.
