Last Saturday, Carlow/Kilkenny TD Pat Deering was accused of manhandling, a 72 year old who is recovering from prostrate cancer,at his constituency office in Carlow Town.
Complaints were made to the local Gardai who have since interviewed Mr Deering and taken witness statements.

Todays Irish Mirror goes into greater detail. (Page 14).

We're just missing the eyewitness video that shows not very much.
TD not reacting to being harangued.
Man not producing medical cert to show he was recovering from cancer.

If it is already published in the print media surely it is fair to dicuss it here?

There appear to be legal issues with posting a snapshot of the article...so you may buy The Irish Mirror.

I usually take care of my manhandling in the shower. Easier cleanup, if you know what I mean?

Somebody with more legal expertise might clarify this but as far as the law is concerned if he put his hands on the lad it's classed as assault. There's no distinction between the two, much as you might like there to be.
Ive been manhandling people out of places for more than 15 years and have never been done for assault and I can guarantee you this guy wont be either if its a clear case of manhandling.

That is the accusation.

A complaint of assault has been made. Statements have been given. It is being investigated. Perhaps the paper are not calling it assault until the DPP decide to charge or not.

But the complaint is one of assault.

Is the Mirror the only paper not owned by billionaire, tax-avoiding supporters of FG?

The victims name had to be removed from the OP so not much chance of his medical cert being posted here...Legal reasons.

It a piece of nonsense to refer to him as a recovering cancer patient.
He turned up hale and hearty enough to invade a place of work and harangue someone.
There was nothing obvious about him to say that he was ill or recovering from a serious illness.
