Sinn Fein: Taoiseach 'running scared'

Sinn Fein has accused the Taoiseach of "running scared" from a television debate with its party leader Gerry Adams.

The comments from the party's finance spokesman Pearse Doherty come after Enda Kenny said he would not take part in a programme fronted by Vincent Browne.

But this evening TV3 has said Vincent Browne has offered to stand aside if the Taoiseach wishes to take part in the debate.

The station says the debate would instead be hosted by TV3's political editor Ursula Hannigan.
