Vincent Browne guest defended by his Mam on Twitter in real 'Irish Mammies' twitter rant
UCD Professor of Economics Karl Whelan appeared on Tonight with Vincent Browne last night, and detractors were quick on social networking site Twitter to criticise. However, they didn't get away with it for long as Mammy Whelan stepped in to defend her son.
Twitter user 'Senator Healy' screencapped the exchanges between Mammy Whelan and other Twitter users and posted it to the social networking site with the caption "best thing happening on Twitter tonight".

Yvonne Whelan followed up the Twitter rant with a regretful tweet this morning simply saying 'note to myself never tweet when a member of family is on tv'.
