KERRY TD Danny Healy Rae’s controversial comments on climate change have lit up social media in Ireland.
During a Dáil debate on the topic yesterday, Mr Healy Rae, who is the son of former TD Jackie and brother of current TD Michael, said that climate change was out of our control.
“God above is in charge of the weather and we here can’t do anything about it,” he said.
He went on to say climate change had nothing to do with “combustible engines”.

Meanwhile, people laugh at Danny Healy Rae as equally as useful TDs like Noonan and Kelly deepen the housing crisis.
