RTE to ‘consider’ allowing Sinn Fein’s Mary Lou McDonald take part in final leaders’ deaate




RTE are said to be considering whether or not to allow Sinn Fein leader Mary Lou McDonald to participate in the final leaders’ debate on Tuesday evening.

Miriam O’Callaghan and David McCullough will interview Fianna Fail’s Micheal Martin and Fine Gael’s Leo Varadkar but they may have to include Mary Lou McDonald after Sinn Fein’s recent poll results.

According to the Sun, RTE say:
“At the outset of the election RTE set out its approach to leaders debates based on empirical data.

“That has not changed. Throughout the campaign RTE has considered representations made by those contesting the election regarding our coverage and leaders debates.

“We will continue to give consideration to any representation made.
