Presidential Hopeful Ejected From South Dublin Council Meeting


Share this article


A Presidential hopeful was kicked out of a council meeting in Dublin last night.

It's after a heated exchange during speeches on who should be the next President.

Four candidates were given an opportunity to pitch at a special sitting of South Dublin Council, arguing why they should secure the council's endorsement.

During her speech, Sarah Louise Mulligan highlighted issues she would address during her presidency before being told her allocated time was up.

Ms Mulligan said she would not be silenced and then took issue with Councillor Dermot Looney and accused him of making a 'smart remark'.

She demanded an apology after he suggested that Ms Mulligan would not be speaking for the people of Ireland.

Shortly after the exchange, the 36-year-old Presidential hopeful was then ejected from the chamber, allowing the proceedings to continue.

South Dublin County Council ultimately decided it would not nominate any candidate for the Presidential election.
