This Day In Irish History tweetz:
This day 35 years ago – 20 February 1985 – Des O’Malley refused to vote against a bill to allow the selling of condoms, despite Fianna Fáil leader Charles Haughey’s instructing deputies to do so.
He said, “I stand by the Republic and accordingly I will not oppose this bill.”
