Brendan Howlin: There are "really weird people" who attack others online

The minister also tells us how he feels about being compared to one half of Morecambe and Wise.

BRENDAN HOWLIN JOINED us for a High Table Interview during the week.

In it, we discussed a wide range of issues – including same-sex marriage, the possibility of Gerry Adams as Taoiseach, abortion, and why he’s proud of Labour.

The Public Expenditure and Reform Minister is often compared to one half of British comedy duo Morecambe and Wise, alongside Finance Minister Michael Noonan.

Apparently it doesn’t bother him too much, but the “really weird people” who attack others on social media are another story…

On a different note, Howlin says he has no regrets about the Labour party entering government with Fine Gael.

Here he explains why he thinks history will be “very kind” to former Tánasite and party leader Eamon Gilmore.
