Social worker denies apologising to Garda Harrison for the involvement of Tusla

A social worker has denied apologising to Garda Keith Harrison and his partner for the involvement of Tusla.

The Disclosures Tribunal is examining contacts between senior gardai and Tusla about Garda Harrison.

Social Worker Donna McTeague says although she would've sought to put the couple at ease about her intervention, she did not apologise.

This contradicts what Garda Harrison said last week, when he said Ms McTeague apologised to them.
