Two politicians and two hoteliers are due to appear before a court in Clifden this morning in connection with the alleged breach 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 controversial dinner took place in the Station House Hotel in Clifden, Co Galway on August 19th 2020, following a two-day golfing event, hosted by the Oireachtas Golf Society.

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 and his son James, the hotel's general manager, are also on the court's list.
