The Public Accounts Committee is to invite former Northern Ireland first minister Peter Robinson and current Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness to appear before it, along with others who were involved in a phone call where the Project Eagle sale was discussed with Minister for Finance Michael Noonan. 

The phone call over the sale by the National Asset Management Agency took place in January 2014.

PAC chairman Sean Fleming also said the committee would begin hearings next Thursday, 29 September, with the Comptroller and Auditor General answering questions on his report about NAMA's controversial Project Eagle sale of property in Northern Ireland, which was published last week.

Fianna Fáil TD Mr Fleming said the PAC also proposed to hear from NAMA Chairman Frank Daly and CEO Brendan McDonagh on its opening day.

The following week, on 6 October, Mr Fleming said the committee expected to hear from Mr Noonan.

Mr Noonan announced last night that he had agreed to appear before the committee following its invitation for him to attend.
