As the Irish media wallowed in yet more shenanigans in Westminster in the second week of January, a major event in the EU was almost totally overlooked. The death of David Sassoli, the much-admired Italian p resident of the European Parliament, barely got a mention. We have no members of the UK parliament. We do have 13 members of the European Parliament.

The state funeral of Sassoli, attended by several heads of state and European leaders, in Rome was not covered at all by RTÉ news. The ‘circus’ in Westminster got headlines.
