    Default Did Willie O'Dea really not vote last night on Bill to liquidate IBRC?

    Willie O'Dea has been accused of not voting in the Dail last night according to this Here in an article titled "Here’s how every TD voted on the Bill to liquidate IBRC". Can this be true?

    We are all aware of O'Dea's dreadful Dail attendance record

    "Figures just released by the Oireachtas Commission show the former Defence Minister attended just 48 of the 68 Dail sessions in the first six months of this year".

    Limerick City TD defends Dail attendance record - Leader Local - Limerick Leader

    But this takes the biscuit if it is true.

    In my opinion Mr O'Dea needs to explain himself to constituents if he did indeed not vote last night.

    You really need to let it go, okay?

    This Willie obsession cannot be healthy....

    Given his involvement in the creation of this mess, it would appear to me he needs a note from his ma (or GP)

    Maybe he didn't have time to read it. That would be a good reason not to vote.

    Personally I enjoy it and what harm is williewatch doing, compared to the harm Fianna Fail did when in Power. More power to you

    Possibly he was paired?

    Midnight emergency legislation with our future at stake? I'm sure Willie thought he had to go home to Limerick and take a token sleepy phone call like the last time.

    There you go, introducing logic into the argument.

    Even if he was paired & if he didn't attend, I'd be interested to learn what he would consider to be more important than attending this historic vote?

    After all, this was only
