Presidential candidate Dana Rosemary Scallon has said newspaper revelations about a dispute within her family over money, was a private and personal matter that had been worked through.
Dana was canvassing in Galway City this morning when she hit out at the media, saying her deceased mother would have been broken hearted to see these details making headlines and it was the media looking for another story to write about.
Ms Scallon said she had no regrets about entering the race for President and the support she was receiving on the ground reinforced her belief that she would be a good ambassador for the people of Ireland if elected. This is the former Eurovision winner`s third attempt wo win the presidential election and she has strongly based her campaign around her belief that the Irish constitution should be protected from EU law.
Dana said she doesn`t regret entering the presidential race and that polls generally did not reflect the support she had and the only day that matters is voting day.
