Michael D Higgins has been accused of treating presidential debates like radio phone-in show Liveline by failing to take part in some events yet calling in with clarifications to statements made by participants, a Fianna Fáil TD has said.
Meanwhile The Irish Independent choose Gavin Duffy as the victor of last night’s debate. Travelled to Cork by train this morning, Gavin addresses a meeting in University College Cork this evening. He now challenges Sean Gallagher as the main rival to Higgins.
