Máire Whelan Formally Appointed A Judge Of The Court Of Criminal Appeal.

: 06/19/2017 - 11:24

Former Attorney General Máire Whelan is now a judge of the Court of Criminal Appeal.

Judge Whelan was formally appointed in a short ceremony at Aras an Uachtarán in the past half hour - despite numerous objections to the move.

Her warrant of appointment was signed by President Higgins and countersigned by An Taoiseach.

Two judges of the High Court - Eileen Creedon and Charles Meenan - have also been appointed at the ceremony.

There's been ongoing political upheaval over Maire Whelan's nomination but the Government maintains the decision is entirely legal.
