Saucer of Milk!

Saucer of milk for Deputy Fergus O’Dowd, who was sharpening his claws this week over his boss’ idea to scrap the Seanad.

In response to Enda’s surprising move, two Senators - Dan Boyle and Fiona O’Malley - came out fighting in defence of the Seanad.

But it appears that Fergus O’Dowd saw straight through them.

“Dan Boyle and Fiona O’Malley couldn’t get elected to the Dail and were gift-wrapped the ‘consolation prize’ of a Seanad seat by the then Taoiseach Bertie Ahern,” O’Dowd said.

“It says it all that two of the Seanad’s staunchest defenders and biggest opponents of its abolition were hand-picked by the Taoiseach to sit in the Seanad.”
