Recently elected Senator, Sharon Keogan, has published a rant on her Facebook page over coverage of her sister Geraldine’s co-option to Meath County Council last Monday.

Geraldine was filling to the seat vacated by Sharon in the Slane electoral area when she won her place in the Senate.

Clearly unhappy over a colour piece in the local media about last Monday’s gathering in the Solstice theatre, Keogan turned the affair into a battle of the sexes, singling out male journalists for stinging criticism.

She posted,

This is exactly why you don’t have more women in politics!
Clearly the Male journalist didn’t get what he wanted and decided to have a pop once again at Sharon Keogan, throwing his rattle out of the pram!
My personal family life is my own business. Maybe they would like to highlight or cover some of the good work I do daily.
The people we represent know who is there when things go wrong. #womeninpolitic #truthwinsout
