RTE political reporter Martina Fitzgerald must be getting pretty fed up of being interrupted during reports on live TV.

On last night's RTE Nine O'Clock News she was speaking to Eileen Dunne from outside the Dail when she could be seen looking briefly to her right.

 

A blonde woman then appeared beside her on camera and said, "If voting changed anything they'd make it illegal".

"Martina, we'll leave it there for the moment.  Thank you," said the ever-professional Eileen as the camera cut back to studio.

Less than two weeks ago Martin was forced to endure a youngster walking up behind her and screaming 'F**K her right in the p***y' as she spoke to Brian Dobson for the Six One News.

The cameras instantly cut back to the studio where a disgruntled Dobson apologised to viewers.

It was not the first time that Dobson had to deal with people interrupting broadcasts. Three years ago he found himself in hot-water after calling a group "idiots".
