The family of the late Charles Haughey could reportedly be hit with a massive costs bill by the Moriarty Tribunal.

Reports this morning say the tribunal intends to conclude that that Mr Haughey obstructed its work.

The finding, if it ends up in the final report, could reportedly lead to the former Taoiseach's estate being denied the legal costs incurred during his dealings with the tribunal.

It could also lead to some of the tribunal's own costs being charged to the Haughey estate.

This morning's reports say Mr Haughey's legal fees could be well in excess of €1m.
