Louth politicians in Twitter spat as election rhetoric ramps up
Election fever has been ramping up in political circles in Louth over the past few days, with Louth politicians taking to social media, arguing who is to blame over an increasingly likely pre-Christmas election.
On Friday, Dundalk Fine Gael Councillor John McGahon took to Twitter, claiming opposition TD’s in Leinster House are “pushing the country over the edge”.
Fianna Fáil TD Declan Breathnach was quick to respond:
John be careful what you and FG wish for!!!— Declan Breathnach (@BreathnachLouth) November 24, 2017
Councillor McGahon responded with a jab, describing Fianna Fáil actions as "carry [on] exhibited by Martin & Co", following up with
Be rest assured that it FF decide to push this country into an election it will be FF candidates bearing the brunt of public anger.— John McGahon (@John_McGahon) November 24, 2017
Deputy Breathnach dodged Councillor McGahon's jabs, delivering one of his own, when he says
Your a spin Doctor John!!— Declan Breathnach (@BreathnachLouth) November 24, 2017
Councillor McGahon's response to Deputy Breathnach, might suggest that the campaign is already well underway:
I was in O'Hanlon Park Boxing Club last night and Faughart this morning and people are genuinely in disbelief at FF forcing an election.— John McGahon (@John_McGahon) November 24, 2017
This particular spat came to an end with Deputy Breathnach's advice to Councillor McGahon
Quit when your ahead !— Declan Breathnach (@BreathnachLouth) November 24, 2017
