Last Night Twitter Lost It After A Row Broke Out Between Two Presidential Candidates

The final Presidential debate took place last night on Primetime and, as expected, it was a bit of a mess.

Four candidates, Liadh Ní Riadh, Peter Casey, Sean Gallagher, and Gavin Duffy came hard for Miggeldy over the current President taking a jet from Dublin to Belfast. Always a good Samaritan, Joan Freeman urged the panel to move away from discussions about spending and to outline their plans for Presidency but her pleas were ignored. However, the public had a lot to say over Higgins being in the firing line:

After Peter Casey was grilled on his comments about the traveller community, Liadh Ní Riada came under fire for comments she made in 2016 about the HPV vaccine. Riada said at the time the vaccine didn’t ‘inspire confidence’ but has since changed her mind. Liadh Ní Riada and Michael D Higgins broke into a heated debated as Gaeilge and Twitter collectively shook – yes, it was like watching two parents fight on the sidelines of a camogie match in Gaeltacht Connemara:

Gallagher’s excuse for not appearing in all of the televised debates was timid but explained that he had no say on recent referendums including the same-sex or Eight amendment:

What is clear after the debate the Dragons, Gavin, Peter, and Sean have failed to impress the Irish public. Sean is a landlord, Gavin didn’t say a lot to impress anyone and Peter believes Ireland should invest in their military:

Whatever happens, it looks like we’re in safe hands with Miggeldy for another seven years:
