Pointing in the direction of Independent TD Michael Collins and Healy-Rae, the Taoiseach said: “I was reliably informed that Deputy Healy-Rae approached people outside of Mass to say I can get you on the bus I can get you a cataract.” 

“You’re only in the bottom of the barrel coming out with that kind of a statement. Cop on a small bit Taoiseach,” Healy-Rae said later in the exchange.
