MacSharry ‘regrets’ massive row in Dáil yesterday

Sligo-Leitrim TD Marc MacSharry admits that he regrets the row that resulted in the suspension that occurred in the Dáil yesterday.

The Fianna Fáil TD sparked a row with Kerry TDs Michael and Danny Healy-Rae stemming from a new card system to allocate speaking time in the Dail.

The former senator claimed the outburst resulted from a frustration that the new system seems to favour Independent TDs and not larger parties.
