Confident Swagger


Last night.

Government Buildings.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney departs the grounds of Leinster House following the defeat of a Sinn Féin vote of no confidence over his botched handling of Katherine Zappone’s UN appointment.


An allegation made in the Dáil yesterday by Sinn Féin politician Matt Carthy about Minister Simon Harris was “appalling” and “an abuse of Dáil privilege”, a Fine Gael TD has said.

Speaking under privilege during a Dáil debate yesterday, Mr Carthy accused Minister Harris of leaking from Cabinet.

A spokesperson for Minister Harris said the accusation amounts to “a clear misuse of Dáil privilege and it’s untrue”.

    With that bit of parliamentary bother out of the way he can fly freely away to sort out EU and other international snags.
