Dail curse strikes again

Fiach Kelly

ANOTHER TD used the f-word in the Dail last night. Following on from Green TD Paul Gogarty's now infamous "f*** you Deputy Stagg" outburst last year, Sinn Fein's Aengus O Snodaigh said the Government "f***ed up the economy".

The Dublin South-Central TD directed the comments at Social Protection Minister Eamon O Cuiv during a debate on the Social Welfare (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. "Minister, there are no jobs there," he said. "I don't know whether you have noticed that the Government have f**ed up the economy. Look around you."

He could face disciplinary measures for the foul-mouthed outburst.
