Two more former Fianna Fail politicians have resigned from the party following findings against them by the Mahon Tribunal.

Former TD GV Wright and former Senator Don Lydon submitted letters of resignation to the party's central office on Tuesday afternoon.

Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern stepped down from the party at the weekend.

The Mahon report found that he had failed to truthfully account for a number of financial transactions.

Padraig Flynn, a former EU commissioner and former councillor John Hannon have also resigned from the party.

The only other figure left facing an expulsion motion at a national executive meeting this Friday is former councillor Finbarr Hanrahan.
