Senan Molony, of the Irish Daily Mail, reports this morning that a public row broke out between Ms Anderson and Mr Fraser in the lobby of the Fitzpatrick Hotel in Manhattan, New York, at around 12.10am on St Patrick’s Day.

Mr Molony, who witnessed the argument, said it lasted for about ten minutes, with both parties pointing their fingers at each other, and that it continued from the lobby to the lifts, in front of about a dozen people.

Mr Molony writes [not online]:

At one point, she said: ‘You are calling me a liar, Martin. I am not a liar. It was a misunderstanding.’ At another juncture, she raised her voice and said: ‘If I had known what the Taoiseach wanted, of course I would have done what he wanted.‘ The origins of the row are unclear.

Crikey.

Anyone?
