Now the US Election is over (those of you with withdrawal symptoms should keep an eye to the Hag of Beara for her posts on campaigning in Ohio) we have returned to the lucky bag that is RTE’s Questions and Answers for live blogging sustenance.

Last nights panel : Olivia Mitchell (very invisible Fine Gael TD), Maureen Gaffney (Psychologist), Sean Connick (FF Backbencher), David Quinn (Director of the Iona Institute), and Edward Walsh (Former President of University of Limerick)

The Topics covered included
– Introduction of non jury trials for people from Limerick (which led to a lot of stuff about single parent families and crime),
– The Civil Partnership Bill,
– The demise of the PD’s, and
– The impact on Ireland of the election of Barack Obama.

I’ll come back to some issues raised (and the manner they were raised!) in later posts but in the true spirit of we watch it so you don’t have to – the live blog is below.
