Cllr Healy Rae to be investigated by ethics committee

Cllr Danny Healy Rae says he has done nothing wrong to warrant an investigation by the Ethics Committee of Kerry County Council. He has until February 11th to respond to a letter from the Mayor and the County Manager on the issue. They wrote to Cllr Healy Rae last Friday to inform him that a formal process has been initiated. The process was started on foot of advice from a senior counsel. He has 28 days to respond. Cllr Healy Rae refused to be drawn on whether or not he makes a submission.
