Ceann Comhairle: TDs behaving 'like gurriers on the street'

The Ceann Comhairle of the Dáil has told TDs that they are behaving like "gurriers shouting on a street at each other".

The intervention from Seán Barrett came after a rowdy morning in the Dáil, with Deputies heckling over home-help cuts, the pensions of former bankers and homelessness.

Mr Barrett said that the behaviour of deputies needs to change.

"Would you please remember one thing," he said to the assembled TDs. "That we're in the Houses of Parliament here, and this is not a shouting match, like gurriers on the street shouting at each other.

"Would you please behave yourself, thank you very much."
