Gaybo fury over Garda leaks scandal.
Byline: KATHY ARMSTRONG
GAY Byrne has slammed Taoiseach Enda Kenny's treatment of Garda whistleblowers.
The broadcaster said he "sacrificed" former secretary-general of the Department of Justice Brian Purcell who resigned in July.
Byrne, 80, told a Sunday newspaper: "Purcell had done good things. He was the guy who faced down the General [Martin Cahill] but he was sacrificed. The whole thing was a botch."
The former Late Late Show host also slammed the way gardai Maurice McCabe and John Wilson were treated after they shone a light on penalty points being wiped out.
He said: "I thought of all the gardai out at 3am in ice, rain, hail and misery, trying to keep people safe and all the time were being undermined by senior officers."
