Micheál Martin challenges Taoiseach to a televised one-to-one debate

The Fianna Fail leader has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged Enda Kenny to a live TV debate.

In proper fighting form, Mr. Martin said that claims made about his party last week were “tired, inaccurate and clichéd”, and added that Mr. Kenny has continuously refused to engage in an open, honest conversation.

His comments follow the Taoiseach’s Ard Fheis speech in Castlebar last night which included promises of 500 new nursing positions and a drop in emigration.

However, Mr Martin says these promises won’t tackle the debacle in the health system.

Proposing the mano-a-mano on national TV, Mr. Martin said “I think it’s time that he faced his political opponents in a one-to-one debate and I challenge him to that debate to take on the unfounded attacks that he has placed on the Fianna Fáil party and make him account for the broken promises.”
