: 06/19/2017 - 17:09

A Kildare TD has described as "appalling" the way in which the appointment of the former Attorney General to the Court of Appeal was handled.

Máire Whelan formally installed as a judge in the court at a ceremony in Aras an Uachtarán attended by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

She didn't apply for the position; three judges, sitting in other courts, expressed interest in the job.

Kildare North Social Democrat TD is Catherine Murphy.
