SINN FEIN’S Pearse Doherty has laughed off a tabloid story about his qualifications – insisting a website biographical mistake was much ado about nothing.
The party website describes the Donegal South West TD as a civil engineer.
The Daily Mirror said he was not entitled to say that as he had quit his course after two years.
This evening Mr Doherty said he is a qualified ‘civil engineering technician’ and described the tabloid yarn as ‘much ado about nothing’.
“It is something that has been blown out of all proportion,” he said tonight.
