The Agriculture Minister Dara Calleary has resigned.
He apologised for going to a golf event attended by 80 people that broke Covid 19 guidelines.
The former minister admitted he shouldn't have gone to the Oireachtas Golf Society dinner at a hotel in Clifden, Co. Galway on Wednesday.
Leitrim councillor Enda McGloin also attended the event as did former Leitrim TD and Senator Gerry Reynolds. The event was organised by former Westmeath Senator Donie Cassidy.
The government's guidelines state only six people can attend indoor gatherings - with some exceptions for up to 50 people.
Minister Calleary presented his resignation to the Taoiseach this morning.
