Numerous complaints about unfair treatment of McGuinness on Prime Time debate

RTÉ says it has received more than 100 complaints about Wednesday' s Prime Time debate between the presidential candidates.

Many of the phone calls and e-mails alleged that Martin McGuinness was unfairly treated by presenter Miriam O Callaghan, who asked the Sinn Féin candidate a series of questions about his IRA membership and his knowledge of the killers of Private Patrick Kelly.

The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland says it would investigate.
