The turf wars continued in the Dail earlier

An Independent TD has said Micheál Martin is drinking too much green tea and it's going to his head when it comes to dealing with environmental issues.

It comes amid a bitter row in the Dáil over the proposed ban on the commercial cutting of turf.

Sinn Féin and Rural Independents have called on the ban to be scrapped ahead of a Dáil motion tonight.
