The Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary has resigned.

He has just told Midwest News that he tendered his resignation to the Taoiseach and it has been accepted.

He apologised last night for going to a golf event attended by 80 people that broke Covid 19 guidelines.

The minister admitted he shouldn't have gone to the Oireachtas Golf Society dinner at a hotel in Clifden, Co. Galway on Wednesday.

The government's guidelines state only six people can attend indoor gatherings - with some exceptions for up to 50 people.
