A Fianna Fail TD has warned that investigative journalism in Ireland will be weakened unless we protect it.

Dara Callerary made the statement during a Dail discussion on a report reviewing the Defamation Act of 2009.

Last month, the EU called on Ireland to align defamation laws here with new EU rules which aim to stop abuses of the legal system.

The Mayo TD says journalism is crucial to keeping those in power in check.
