A source said the Garda Ombudsman didn’t inform gardaí of their senior investigator’s resignation or his alleged attendance at the Hutch party until after the story had already broken in the media on Friday night.
“Gardaí were only informed of this issue at a very late stage,” the source said.
“But an analysis is already underway of all investigations he carried out into officers and all the information that he accessed to determine whether anything unusual occurred.”
The now resigned GSOC investigator was involved in a number of highly sensitive investigations into An Garda Síochána, including the investigation into the death of Superintendent Colm Fox, who took his own lifedied by suicide in Ballymun Garda Station in 2019.
Supt Fox was the lead detective in the investigation into the murder of David Byrne at the Regency Hotel during the time Patrick Hutch Junior was charged and appeared in court.
The case against Patrick Hutch Junior collapsed following the death of Supt Fox.
