‘Account for your actions’ – Cullinane calls out Waterford Senator over ‘golfgate’
Waterford TD David Cullinane has turned the screw on embattled Fine Gael Senator John Cummins.
The local Sinn Féin deputy took to social media to challenge Senator Cummins to “account for his actions” and to give an interview about his decision to attend the now infamous golf society dinner in county Galway in breach of Covid-19 regulations.
In a statement after the story broke, Senator Cummins apologioed for his “lapse of judegment”, saying: “I have been so careful in adhering to the public health advise since February and this was a lapse in judgement for which I genuinely apologise unreservedly.”
However, Senator Cummins, who has been subjected to intense – and in some cases extremely abusive – criticism online in recent days, has so far declined to be interviewed about his attendence at the golf dinner.
