Newsline: Irish priest throws paint at Russian Embassy during live radio interview

A Catholic priest has thrown red paint at the gates of the Russian Embassy in Dublin, stating that he ensured the paint had an oil base so that would be difficult to remove. Fr. Fergal MacDonagh, from the Dolphin’s Barn parish in Dublin, threw the paint during a live interview with Irish radio show Liveline. “I’m about to throw paint at it. I won’t be the first and I won’t be the last. I’m going to do it now. I’m trying to not spill it,” MacDonagh told Liveline host Joe Duffy, before going quiet for several seconds. “I threw the empty tin of paint on the driveway,” the priest said, returning to the interview.
