Sinn Féin's Mary Lou McDonald and the Taoiseach were involved in yet another spat in the Dáil chamber this afternoon, after Leo Varadkar said McDonald was "cranky".
Replying to the Taoiseach, the Sinn Féin deputy leader said Varadkar was "facile" and "dismissive".
Harsh words have been exchanged between the pair in recent days, with the Taoiseach yesterday accusing McDonald of being scripted, and stating that she reminds him of Marine Le Pen.
It continued into Leaders’ Questions today, when he said Sinn Féin members were constantly interrupting him when he was speaking and again, stating that its deputy leader must spend a lot of time rehearsing her Dáil contributions http://jrnl.ie/3618929
