Share this article


The Dáil was suspended briefly this afternoon after a row over speaking time.

Fianna Fáil's Marc McSharry took issue with Independent Michael Healy-Rae in the chamber.

The Dáil is trialing a new system where TDs need numbered cards in order to be allowed to speak on an issue.

Leas-Cheann Comhairle Pat The Cope Gallagher suspended the Dáil after this outburst.
