Sinn Fein TD Martin Ferris has denied allegations that he racially abused members of the travelling community at a housing estate in County Kerry.
The claims have been made in a report in a Sunday newspaper.
Speaking earlier in the day, the TD said he's aware that an incident did take place at a housing estate in Tralee, but he claims he was not involved in it.
"Without any ambiguity whatsoever, with 100 per cent certainty, I can say, I did not, in any circumstances give racial abuse towards anybody," he said.
