Claire Byrne Live on RTE One last night
Last night, on RTÉ One’s Claire Byrne Live, there was a panel discussion about the forthcoming Budget before Ms Byrne interviewed Fianna Fáil leader Mícheál Martin.
The panel included economist Dan O’Brien, Fine Gael TD Simon Harris, Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty and sociologist Niamh Hourigan.
Social Democrat candidate Anne-Marie McNally writes:
Well it turns out that Claire Byrne live last night had zero interest in hearing from ANY election candidates despite having invited some of us out. It wasn’t just SocDems; FF & FG candidates were also studiously ignored.
We were all placed sitting in the same vicinity and hell or high water wasn’t going to make Claire call on us despite the raised hands.
Interesting debate but defo time that could’ve been better spent at home!
