Ann Phelan incident[edit]

Before the 2016 general election, Labour TD Ann Phelan participated in a live radio debate on the station. While there she got into an argument, saying: "I am just going to give up here now. I came to this debate here tonight, I came in here, I've been completely ignored and I'll tell you now I'm fed up of the whole bloody lot of ye." Then she walked out of the studio. She admitted later that she had "absolutely" lost her temper.[1]
