Limerick Leader release O'Dea recording

The Limerick Leader has released the recording of the interview journalist Michael Dwane conducted with the Defence Minister Willie O'Dea.

Willie O'Dea denied in an affidavit in April 2009 that he made claims to the journalist about Limerick Sinn Féin Councillor Maurice Quinlivan.

Minister O’Dea later admitted he had made a false statement and apologised to the court when the case was settled in December.
