Calls for review of expenses paid to Deputy McGinley and Senator O’Domhnaill

There have been calls for any excess  Dail travel expenses paid to Deputy Dinny McGinley and Senator Brian O'Domhnaill to be returned to the exchequer if it is found they were over paid.

Both Deputy McGinley and Senator O'Domhnaill claim expenses to and from Dublin via Sligo, each claim that they do so so as to attend constituency offices in Donegal Town and Ballybofey respectively.

It is thought that an investigation may now be launched into both cases following reports that a complaint is due to be lodged with the Dail expenses watch dog.

Senator Doherty, who travels to Dublin through the north, says any over payment to either Donegal representatives should be paid back.
