An Aontú representative for Mayo, has hit out at Taoiseach Micheál Martin over remarks he made in the Dáil regarding the EU cross border directive.

Paul Lawless says the Taoiseach’s response to the question is a slap in the face to those he brings to Belfast for cataract procedures.

Independent TD for Cork, Deputy Michael Collins raised concerns in the Dáil about the threat posed to the Cross Border Directive by the chance of a no deal brexit.

Mr. Lawless says the Taoiseach responded by jeering and mocking Deputy Collins, saying “you guys put the busses together and run a bit of an auld operation”. He failed to answer the very important question – what will happen with the cross border directive in the event of a no deal?”
