Last night.

Vera Twomey accepting her ‘People of the Year’ award for her struggle to obtain medicinal cannabis for her daughter, Ava.

David T writes:

Vera’s acceptance speech included criticism of Leo Varadkar [who was present] and his government’s policy in this area.

RTÉ, in their highlights clip (above), has chosen to edit this out. It was a magnificent speech and took a lot for Vera to speak out… Unbelievable censorship from the state broadcaster.

In fairness.
