Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said a video of him circulating online stems from an abusive incident last summer.

But he added that not a week goes by that he isn’t verbally abused on the street.

“I don’t know where this video came from,” he said.

“That was just last summer. I was running home from the office on a beautiful sunny day. I remember the incident.

“Unfortunately, it is a sad part of politics and public life at the moment. Not a week would go by without someone throwing insults onto the street.

“The vast majority of people who come up to you on the street or in public are very nice and very polite, very polite.

“They usually want to say thank you for the work you’re doing, whether it’s as a local TD or during the pandemic or whatever.

“But one in ten would berate you and I’ve kind of accepted it as part of political life — maybe I shouldn’t.”
