Green swing overplayed by Dublin media

Not all politicians are in full agreement that there is a massive swing to the Green Party.

Independent TD Michael Fitzmaurice claims that there is Dublin based media agenda to overplay the success of the Green party candidates in the local and European elections.

The Roscommon East Galway TD says it’s a cause of concern to see how the parties in government are reacting to the perceived success of the Green Party and are ignoring the fact that Independents have been with the third biggest mandate when it comes to local government.
