A TD has claimed people who are giving up eating meat have never worked a hard day in their lives. Danny Healy Rae says a good piece of meat is the only thing that can revive you after a long day.
It's after Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he was trying to cut down on how much meat he eats to help reduce his carbon footprint. However, Danny Healy Rae doesn't believe that's the way to go.
Speaking earlier today, he said: 'Them fellas who are talking about eating meat have never worked hard because if you're a hard worker and do a hard days work, there's nothing to bring you back like a piece of good meat, whether it is bacon and cabbage or whether it is beef or mutton stew." (At this point someone shouted from behind: "Bitta steak every now and then Danny").
"If you don't have that you won't rise out the following day", he continued.
