Clare Daly has said she has received new information from Garda whistleblowers about alleged corruption in the force.
Daly has said she has been in touch with two serving Gardaí who are facing internal pressure because of their allegations.
She added the claims are being investigated internally, however there is no indication of any concrete action being taken.
“We are presently in contact with two active Garda whistleblowers. One of whom is out sick from work now for ten months - his allegations being processed adequately,” said Daly.
“(There is) another man who goes into work in very difficult circumstances everyday.”
“The Deputy Commissioner (of An Garda Síochána) is in charge of his case and these are serious allegations that are being investigated, including Gardaí being involved in drugs - not action there either.”
