Dáil suspended twice this afternoon after Taoiseach causes disturbance

According to reports the Dáil had to be be suspended twice this afternoon after the Taoiseach Enda Kenny was accused of bringing the House into disrepute.

The news comes as Enda Kenny was reportedly being questioned  by Anti-Austerity leader Paul Murphy, when the Taoiseach was accused of being dismissive to the oposition leader. It is believed Deputy Murphy had questioned Mr Kenny regarding payment rates at Irish Water, but the Taoiseach allegedly became disruptive when he said he would not “spoon-feed” him the information, and told Mr Murphy  to “toddle along” to an Irish Water briefing instead.

The rather crude remarks drew strong criticism from other oposition leaders such as Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin and Independent TD Roisin Shortall, leading to a row that saw the House suspended for 10 minutes, and then another 10 when the row resumed later.
