In today's election coverage for Dublin, RTÉ's political correspondent, Katie Hannon, briefly mentioned Gemma O'Doherty's campaign to become an MEP in the EU elections remarking that she believed "her platform had become a little more radical" since she tried to win a nomination for the presidential elections. Hannon said that as O'Doherty has name recognition and a strong social media following, it would be interesting to see how successful she is in the election.
O'Doherty has been shut out of all debates in the media in the run up to the election. She has protested twice outside RTÉ with supporters of her party Anti-Corruption Ireland.
To overcome the scant media coverage her campaign has received, O'Doherty has hired a plane to fly a banner over Dublin and put adverts on busses.
Dermot O’Leary from the National Bus and Rail Union criticised the the adverts writing that the campaign was in “direct contradiction between the views/principles of the candidate and the indisputable fact that Dublin Bus is a multicultural employer,” and said that his union would fully support any driver who refuses to drive buses bearing the advertisement on the grounds of conscientious objection.
Máirtín Ó Baoighealláin, a bus driver and supporter of the National Party responded to O'Leary's criticism here:
