Meanwhile, At The High Court


RTÉ’s Fergal O’Brien tweetz:

Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín has withdrawn his bid to seek a High Court injunction to stop the broadcast of the leaders’ debate on RTE’s Claire Byrne Live tonight. His counsel informed the court this afternoon the “injunction application will not be proceeding”.


Claire Byrne’s two-hour live debate from Galway will take place on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

It will involve Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald, Fine Gael’s Leo Varadkar, Labour’s Brendan Howlin; Fianna Fáil’s Micheál Martin; Solidarity/People Before Profit’s Richard Boyd Barrett; Green Party’s Eamon Ryan; and Social Democrats’ Roísín Shortall.

Aontú will not seek injunction over RTÉ debate (RTÉ)

    What was the decision to have leaders on based upon? Was it number of TDs or share of the vote or what?

      If Aontu gets on, then all the right wing niche parties have to be represented like Renua, National Party, Irexit etc and nobody need that kind of hateful pooshow on their tv.

          Have you asked RTE what their criteria are, rather than expecting others to find out for you.

            God forbid I would ask others for their insight. I thought informed people on here might know.

    I thinl it was based on how far in the past their policies were

    Wouldnt an Aontu govt be adorabme, Magdalene laundries opened as quick as a Mc Donalds

    So nobody actually knows the criteria being used by RTE?

    It must be number of TDs I’d say. I’m fine with that tbh.

        Still carries some weight in the IT though. Breda O’Brien’s entire column on Saturday was “Vote Aontú”.

            Nobody here admits to caring because they don’t like him and don’t agree with that party. But that’s just not being intellectually curious and/or not thinking about the principal involved.
