MARY LOU MCDONALD staged a sit-in that lasted almost four hours in the Dáil yesterday afternoon.

The row started when the Sinn Féin deputy leader was angered by what she said was Tánaiste Joan Burton’s failure to answer her questions about water charges.

Having failed to resume her seat the Ceann Comhairle, Seán Barrett, ordered McDonald to leave the chamber but she refused.

Barrett refused to return to the chamber until McDonald left, before adjourning the house until next Tuesday.

So today we’re asking, What do you make of Mary Lou McDonald’s sit-in?
