Leo Varadkar has had the accuracy of a Dáil statement on the leaking of a confidential document questioned.
The Village Magazine, which broke the story, has published further messages, which it claims shows the Tánaiste had a much closer friendship with Dr Matt O Tuathail than suggested.
Leo Varadkar said Dr O Tuathail was the kind of friend he met two or three times a year.
The Village magazine suggests there were at least 10 meetings between the two in 2019.
Leo Varadkar will face a no confidence vote in the Dáil tomorrow.
