This afternoon.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe has insisted that Maria Bailey was removed from the Fine Gael election ticket in a ‘democratic manner’.

Councillor Jennifer Carroll MacNeill has been added to the ticket in Dun Laoghaire after Fine Gael HQ accepted a local motion asking for changes.

Via The Irish Examiner:

Asked about any potential action Ms Bailey may now take to contest the decision, Mr Donohoe said: “It’s a very much a much a matter for Deputy Bailey regarding the response to what happened last night. Last night was a democratic decision that was made by the Executive Council.”

Speaking in Dublin’s north inner city, Mr Donohoe said the controversy had caused public debate but had also been very difficult for Ms Bailey herself.

    don’t wanna hear anymore on how tough it’s been for her. it’s irrelevant. if you throw a punch at an innocent person and miss and hit the wall, you can’t bleat about how sore you hand is.

    you also cant say you were “acting on the advice” of someone who said you should punch that person.

    you also can’t say it was a smear campaign, that the real problem is the people who ratted on you for punching that person.

    you also can’t say it’s because you’re a woman people are angry that you punched someone, and in fact this is all just a big sexist ploy.
