According to to days Indo Michael Lowery has been forced into updating his entry in the Dail register of Interests.
Seemingly he was put under pressure from "Political scientist and 'Sunday Independent' columnist Elaine Byrne last weekend encouraged her readers to complain about Mr Lowry to the Dail authorities.!"
Lowry declares controversial UK site after spate of complaints - National News - Independent.ie
The article says "THE Oireachtas has been inundated with complaints about land in England owned by Independent TD Michael Lowry, which he failed to declare in the Dail register of interests.
Mr Lowry only added the land to his declaration of interests yesterday after the controversy blew up over his failure to list his part-ownershio of the 21-acre site in Wigan.
More than 80 members of the public have complained in writing to Dail authorities in recent days at the controversial TD's failure to declare his share in the land."
Does the register apply if income is earned by TDs for such things as writing newspaper columns, company directorships etc? Does it matter anyway? Mr Lowery doesn't seem too concerned.
