FIANNA FÁIL TD Robert Troy was caught on mic describing a situation as “f***ing desperate” in the Dáil earlier today.

The Longford-Westmeath deputy was chairing this morning’s debate on the Social Welfare Bill while his party colleague Willie O’Dea was speaking.

Troy can clearly be heard describing a situation as “f***ing desperate” and goes onto say “a f***ing topical” – likely a reference to the Dáil’s Topical Issues debates on matters of the day:

It’s not quite this level of swearing…

… but it’s still most unparliamentary from Troy.
