Tánaiste and local Min. of State literally rock the boat in Thomastown!

The Tánaiste has fallen out of a boat into flood waters in Co Kilkenny.

Joan Burton and Minister of State Ann Phelan were being pulled along in the boat in Thomastown by a local artist when it tipped over.

The Tánaiste may have learned a lesson about rocking the boat before an election – but laughed about the incident afterwards.

Labour might not be floating voters’ boats at the moment – but Minister Ann Phelan says both her and the Tánaiste were quick to find their sea-legs after the incident!

Deputy Phelan spoke to KCLR’s MaryAnn Vaughan right after it happened…
