Pics: Luke Ming Flanagan wears his Oscar the Grouch t-shirt in the Dáil

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street…

THE INFLUX OF independent TDs at the last election brought with it much debate about dress code in the Dáil chamber.

While there’s been much talk about Mick Wallace’s shaggy grey hair and pink t-shirts there’s also been a few eyebrows raised by Luke Ming Flanagan’s attire not least when he wore a suit made of hemp in the chamber.

But yesterday he brought a bit more colour to the chamber when he appeared in a bright orange Sesame Street t-shirt which pays tribute to the character Oscar the Grouch.

The Roscommon-South Leitrim TD seemed a little grouchy himself as he discussed the concentration of media ownership with Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte:
