Jody Corcoran: If RTE thinks that this is all over, then it doesn't realise Sean's resolve

The defeated candidate is determined to find out exactly who did what and when over the 'Frontline' fake tweet, writes Jody Corcoran

SEAN Gallagher is sitting in the living room of his comfortable home overlooking the bay of the picturesque village of Blackrock, Co Louth. Across the way are the Cooley Mountains.

His wife, Trish, home from the gym, is on her laptop in an adjoining room. Gallagher is dressed in jeans and open-neck, blue-striped shirt. He is doing his best to remain Zen-like. It is 6pm on Thursday.

He has read closely the report of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and is pleased -- or relatively pleased -- but not entirely satisfied. He needs to know more, to know what precisely happened in RTE that night, that week, to change the course of the presidential election.
