Irish Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary has resigned after attending a golf dinner with more than 80 people. He had been agriculture minister in Micheál Martin’s administration for just a month.

The Irish PM accepted the resignation, stating Mr Calleary’s behaviour was “wrong” and “an error of judgement.”

“In light of the updated public health guidance this week I should not have attended the event. I wish to apologise unreservedly to everyone,” Calleary wrote in a tweet.
