Whatever side of the web summit leaving Ireland debate you are on there can be no doubt that it is a massive shame for the city to lose an event of this size. Today has been full of recriminations about who was right or wrong in what felt like two lovers breaking up.
When co-founder of the Summit Daire Hickey appeared on RTE News though he was grilled by Sharon Ni Bheoláin in a seriously aggressive manner. She kept butting in and basically not letting him make any of his points. No wonder nobody is tuning into TV any longer with this sort of nonsense.
