Fine Gael will carry out a review of issues around Maria Bailey's personal-injury claim, which the TD has now dropped.
Maria Bailey discussed the matter with the Taoiseach yesterday afternoon and the party confirmed last night that a full review will now take place.
Fine Gael's review into the circumstances of Maria Bailey's now cancelled injury claim will be undertaken by senior counsel, David Kennedy.
The party expects the review to be complete before the end of next week.
This comes after days of negative publicity around Maria Bailey's fall from a swing at the Dean Hotel in Dublin in 2015.
Fine Gael hierarchy were also left reeling after she appeared on radio earlier this week without telling the party leadership that she was doing so.
Yesterday Maria Bailey did not appear in her role as chair of the Oireachtas housing committee with her deputy Pat Cassey taking proceedings.
However, Fine Gael says she will remain on as chairperson of that committee while their review takes place.
