More on the Barry McSweeney saga in todays Irish Times:
Mr Martin said before the weekend that a decision might be made within a couple of days, raising expectations that the Cabinet might settle the issue at today’s meeting.
This could not be confirmed yesterday, however.
Dr McSweeney could not be reached for comment.
The Labour Party’s spokeswoman on education and science, Jan O’Sullivan, continued yesterday to press the Minister for details relating to the adviser.
“There are still unanswered questions about Dr McSweeney’s claim that Pacific Western was different” when he received his degree in 1992, Ms O’Sullivan said yesterday.
She wrote to the Minister on November 4th, requesting more information, including details of the research conducted by Dr McSweeney for his PhD. “Neither of these have been clarified to my mind,” she said.
A resignation this week?
