Two senior civilians in the Gardaí have told the Public Accounts Committee they cannot express full confidence in all senior management of the force.

Head of internal audit, Niall Kelly and head of human resources John Barrett are among a number of witnesses before the committee on financial irregularities at the Garda training college.

The executive director of finance today withdrew his previous assertion that the draft audit report was “unprofessional, misleading and mischievous”.

Mr Kelly and Mr Barrett then told Tipperary Labour TD Alan Kelly they could not express full confidence in the senior management team.
