A Fianna Fail councillor has apologised to Solidarity-People Before Profit TD Ruth Coppinger for asking her to "please just keep your clothes on."

Kilkenny councillor Patrick McKee tweeted the Dublin West TD on Monday evening during a debate on RTE One programme Claire Byrne Live.

During the show, Ms Coppinger was taking part in a debate that 'ring girls' should no longer be used in boxing matches because they promote sexism.

In since-deleted tweet directed at Ms Coppinger over her position in the debate, Mr McKee said: "We live in a “reasonably” liberal democracy.

"If women want to wear a bikini & take part in sporting events let them. It has nothing to do with you @RuthCoppingerTD. Please just keep your clothes on. Please #cblive"

The tweet was subsequently criticised by a number of people, including Fianna Fail TD Lisa Chambers, who said the party did not condone such a "standard of commentary".

Mr McKee later told The Irish Times that he was exercising his freedom of expression, but in a subsequent tweet, he apologised to Ms Coppinger for his remark.

He posted: "Last evening, during a debate on the Claire Byrne Live Show, I tweeted a personal opinion which referenced @RuthCoppingerTD.

"I want to apologise to Ruth for any offence caused. It was certainly not intended. #CBLive"
