Things got heated in the Dáil yesterday.

YESTERDAY’S ENORMOUS ROW in the Dáil made headlines outside of Ireland, as the Healy Rae brothers got into a shouting match with Fianna Fáil’s Marc MacSharry.

The angry scenes were sparked after Danny Healy Rae raised the issue of the programme for government committing to protect farmers. Michael Healy Rae indicated that he wanted to share speaking time and stood up to speak, which MacSharry appeared to object to.

These kind of scenes are not completely uncommon but this was the first major row of 2018 at Leinster House.

So, today we’re asking you: What do you think of Dáil rows?


Poll Results:

Embarrassing (4911)
A sign of a healthy democracy (2987)
Unacceptable (2587)
A bit of fun (1229)
