Fine Gael launch internal review into Maria Bailey swing case

The saga continues.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar met with under fire TD Maria Bailey on Wednesday to discuss the compensation claim she is withdrawing against The Dean Hotel in Dublin.

Bailey has come under increasing criticism following an interview she gave on Today with Sean O'Rourke earlier this week.

It was announced on Wednesday that an internal review will be conducted by Fine Gael to establish all the facts in relation to the civil case Bailey is withdrawing.

A party spokesperson said: "In relation to a civil case which Deputy Bailey is withdrawing from the courts, Fine Gael is undertaking an internal review to establish all facts.

"The review will be undertaken by David Kennedy, Senior Counsel.

"Deputy Maria Bailey has agreed to participate fully with this review.

"Fine Gael will not be making any further comment at this time."
