image for Gerry Adams takes seat in Irish Parliament - Mrs Doyle from Father Ted is livid
Mr Adams's seat in the Dail-ette

Following the result of the Irish election, leader of Sinn Fein, the bearded and glasses-wearing Gerry Adams has caused a political uproar by taking his seat.

Mrs Doyle, who left her housekeeping position at Father Ted's house on Craggy Island to become housekeeper at the Dail (the Irish Parliament) was said to be absolutely livid. And to reinforce how annoyed Mrs Doyle was, she reportedly said:

"I'm livid, livid so I am, livid".

Mr Adams had been allocated seat end seat 35, on the middle row at the left (as you look from the entrance towards the chair of the speaker, John Totalberk-cow). When Mrs Doyle reported for work the following morning she had a total shock.

She said she was always very methodical in the way she cleans the "house", and while the front row finished with seat 34, she noted the second row began with seat 36.

While she said she was livid, she also said she was "diss-cuss-ted", adding that it was the sort of thing Father Hackett would have done on Craggy Island, but not the sort of thing she expected from Gerry Adams.

She said there was no doubt. "To be sure, Gerry Adams has taken his seat. Jaysus knows what car boot he'll be selling it at, but that's not the point. To be sure. He's thrown out my cleaning schedule totally. To be sure. How will I get to clean from seat 34 to seat 36 without a 35 in between. To be sure."

Caoimhghin O Caolain, the new Sinn Fein MP for Cavan Monaghan, is completely unpronounceable.
