The Justice Minister will face renewed calls to answer questions on the appointment of Seamus Woulfe to the Supreme Court when the Dail resumes later.

Opposition parties want Helen McEntee to explain the process, and why the Taoiseach was not made aware of other applicants for the role.

It comes as a motion of impeachment in Mr Justice Woulfe looks set to be defeated this week.

The controversy surrounds his attendance at an Oireachtas Golf Society dinner in Clifden, which was in breach of Covid-19 restrictions.

Social Democrats Co-leader, Catherine Murphy, says the People Before Profit motion is NOT the way forward.
