Gardai are investigating an alleged death threat received by Mr. Coonan, who made some controversial comments in the Dáil when he compared the water protesters to ISIS extremists, adding fuel to the fire when he said that Dublin protesters are ‘parasites’ and ‘living off country people.’

The alleged death threat was received via telephone in his constituency office. A member of his staff took the call, and someone on the line allegedly made personal death threats both against the TD and the member of staff.

Gardai are said to be investigating this incident and also the alleged death threats issued against Alan Kelly.
