Justice Minister Helen McEntee has announced that she is expecting a baby making her the first Cabinet minister in the history of the State to be pregnant while in office. She is not entitled to maternity leave due to the nature of her job. What do you think - is this fair? Clare chats to Social Democrat TD Holly Cairns who raised this very issue in the Dail in July.
