Eileen Flynn, the independent senator, has revealed she was told by a male politician that she was appointed to the Seanad as a "token seat".

Ms Flynn made history last month, becoming the first Traveller woman to serve in the Oireachtas when she was appointed to the upper house by Micheál Martin.
