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Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín has withdrawn his bid to seek a High Court injunction to stop the broadcast of the leaders’ debate on RTE’s Claire Byrne Live tonight.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”.

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.
