'You are pathetic': Mary Lou McDonald and Micheál Martin have heated exchange in Dáil

The Taoiseach and the Sinn Féin leader have traded their most personalised insults yet in the Dáil – each accusing the other of corruption.

Micheál Martin said Ms McDonald was “leading with your chin,” and said Sinn Féin had a history of corrupting Irish life through murder, mayhem and rape.

She retorted: “Ansbacher. The Galway tent. Go away out of that. You are pathetic.”
