Galway Bay fm newsroom – The wife of now Fianna Fáil T.D, Colm Keaveney has settled out of court with the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind charity.

Deirdre Keaveney took a legal case against the charity after being made redundant along with others in 2010.

Mrs. Keaveney from Tuam had worked for the Guide Dogs for the Blind as a regional manager based at the Tuam office.

She and others were made redundant 3 years ago as part of a cost-cutting programme.

She took legal action against the charity, however the case has been settled out of court.

According to the Irish Independent, the case was settled without any admission of liability on either side.

Both parties agreed to abide by a confidentiality clause.

Mrs. Keaveney was previously the focus of the limelight when it emerged she had worked part-time for her husband Colm as a parliamentary assistant.

Last week, the former Labour Party Chairman and Galway East T.D, declared that he was joining the Fianna Fáil party.
