A Labour TD has been given an early Christmas holiday, after he was booted out of the Dáil for misbehaviour.

Michael McNamara refused to honour a demand from the the Ceann Comhairle to keep quiet, as the Dáil debated its own 'order of business'.

It is the second time the TD has been kicked out for misbehaviour.

This means he now serves a two-day suspension instead of one.

This will result in him not being allowed back in today or tomorrow, which are the last two sitting days before Christmas.
