Political party leaders will meet later to discuss the controversy surrounding Supreme Court judge Seamus Woulfe.

Mr Justice Woulfe is refusing to resign after attending a golf dinner that broke Covid restrictions - despite Chief Justice Frank Clarke calling for him to do so.

Mayo Fianna Fail Senator Lisa Chambers says it is difficult for the Government to resolve the current standoff within the judiciary due to the separation of powers.

The Government and the judiciary cannot comment on whether or not the other body has done wrong under the Irish Constitution.

Senator Chambers told Midwest News that it has left the Government 'in a difficult position'.
