How radio discussion became a spat
Published 02/02/2014 | 02:30
Breda O'Brien, of the Iona Institute, and Colm O'Gorman, of Amnesty Ireland, appeared on The Late Debate on RTE Radio One.
The programme, hosted by Audrey Carville, began with a discussion about the recent Saturday Night Show/Miss Panti brouhaha . . .
Audrey Carville: "Before we get into the substantive discussion tonight, I want to mention the fact that, over the past number of days, RTE issued an apology and made a financial settlement to you, Breda, and to a number of others, including the Iona Institute and this followed allegations made on the Saturday Night Show, on television two weeks ago, during an interview with Rory O'Neill, who's better known as drag queen, Panti Bliss. Now RTE have not issued a statement to us about this matter for our programme tonight. But Breda, as far as you're concerned, has a line now been drawn under this?"
