Taoiseach insists Sinn Fein demonstrators used "abusive, filthy language" in Limerick

Taoiseach today repeated his allegation that Sinn Fein demonstrators abused Fine Gael women members.

During heated Dail exchanges, Mr Kenny rejected a call from Sinn Fein leader, Gerry Adams, to withdraw his allegation first made yesterday.

"What you said yesterday was untrue. Sinn Fein people were not involved in that demonstration," Mr Adams said.

But the Taoiseach said he would not withdraw his allegation and said "associates of Sinn Fein" caused repeated problems.

He insisted that Sinn Fein demonstrators were at recent events in Limerick and Clare and used abusive language.

"You weren't there - I was ... They used abusive, filthy language the like of which I never heard," Mr Kenny added.
