Listen: Kildare FF TD Says "Commander-In-Chief" Tweet Was "Tongue-In-Cheek".

: 09/20/2018 - 11:57

A Kildare Fianna Fáil TD who posted a tweet referring to Presidential candidate, Seán Gallagher, as the "next commander in chief", says it "was a bit tongue-in-cheek".

Fianna Fáil is not fielding its own candidate in October 26th's election, and has pledged its support to incumbent, Michael D. Higgins.

Mr. Gallagher is seen, in some quarters, as a de facto Fianna Fáil candidate, because he is a former member of the party's National Executive.

Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD, James Lawless, speaking to Kildare Today says his tweet wasn't in earnest.
