Dun Laoghaire TD Mary Mitchell O’Connor put Miss Piggygate behind her today when she posed in pink for photographs with Luke "Ming" Flanagan to support "Pink Friday" in Leinster House for cancer awareness.

On Tuesday, Dail microphones picked up a conversation between the Roscommon TD and his colleagues Mick Wallace and Shane Ross who were discussing here attire.

Mr Wallace referred to her as “Miss Piggy” while Ming Flanagan and Share Ross made snide comments about her penchant for pink and colourful clothing as well as her love of high heels.

A drama ensued but all four made up afterwards although Ming didn’t actually apologise to here because, he said, he was only part of the conversation.
