A barrister is set to be questioned by the garda watchdog over the controversy surrounding the Barry Cowen drink-drive debacle after a senior officer provided the watchdog with the lawyer’s name, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) is probing whether a member of the force leaked details to the press of the Garda Pulse record of a drink-driving offence that cost Mr Cowen his job as agriculture minister.
