Independent TD Clare Daly has been slammed on Twitter for an 'utterly tasteless' tweet on the Paris terror attacks.

Ms Daly re-tweeted a message posted by fellow TD Mick Wallace, in which he questioned whether France's militarisation could have been responsible.

She accompanied the tweet by saying: "Tragedy beyond belief...everyone's thoughts with victims but it's always the right time to ask why or it will go on."

Richie Egan said: "no it's not - pause and reflect on humanity for at least a while"

TV3 presenter Elaine Crowley said: "Now is NOT the time. Very poor taste."

Sarah Ryan said: "Utterly tasteless, stop driving your own political agendas and show some humanity"

Ollie Golden said: "crass and tasteless who are more interested in votes than people's lives"

Meanwhile Philip O'Sullivan said: "People who harp on about 'human rights' trivialising the killing of innocents"
