The Dun Laoghaire TD’s move comes after a week when the controversy overshadowed her party’s local and European election campaigns.

It is claimed Ms Bailey can no longer sit or stand for long period without experiencing pain and discomfort as a result of the incident in July 2015. Ms Bailey now says: "I had nothing to hide.

I can say, " I haven ' t had a chance to do my homework yet - I 've been too busy." In your context you are using " chance " with the meaning of "luck" or "happening to'. That looks like a gallicism to me but I may well be wrong.

Asked if any action would be taken after statements in the papers Ms Bailey had lodged appeared to be inaccurate, the Taoiseach said "I haven't had a chance to talk to her about it yet but I'm sure I will next week."

Junior minister John Paul Phelan, Fine Gael's director of elections for the local elections said "what Maria does is her own business" when asked about his response to her dropping the case.

It was put to him that the case annoyed a lot of people and he was asked about its impact on Fine Gael's election campaign.

"I don't think it had an effect one way of another on the election.

"This was the first local election in 15 years that was actually a local election. The one big national issue is reflected in the results and that's climate."

Ms Bailey sought a personal injury claim against Dublin's The Dean hotel over a fall from a swing. The Dun Laoghaire TD has since dropped her claim. Speaking on RTE Radio One's This Week, Mr Varadkar said that Ms Bailey's claim was brought up when local election candidates were canvassing over the past week.

‘Maybe she HAS FALLEN down and she can’ t get up,’ said Sarah. Just then, they heard Ms Harris coming Michelle’s big night. Michelle was quite nervous about her performance in the school play. Nowadays, the Trans-Siberian Railway gives Russians and foreign travellers the chance to see an

" I haven ' t gotten a chance to " or " I haven ' t had a chance to " As far as I am concerned, the word discrepancy between "got" and "gotten" is due to the difference between the British English and the American English but I am not sure. Any opinions would be helpful.

Asked if he welcomed the dropping of the case he said: "Look what Maria does is her own business. Any court case like that – I don't really want to get into the minutae of it.

"Obviously after the election from a Fine Gael perspective we'll be taking about everything that had an impact but I don't think, certainly knocking on doors in the last week that wasn't an issue that was coming up.
