Paddy Power gave a VERY cheeky reminder to our government TD’s


We are no stranger to Paddy Power and their fearless advertising campaigns that are known to poke fun at various individuals and groups in Ireland. 

And now it seems that all the ministers in Dáil Éireann are the butt of the joke in their latest ad that has been seen around Merrion Square and Kildare street today and yesterday. 

As the election date is finally announced today, the message emblazoned on a large mobile truck for ministers is: "TD's, don't forget to settle up your bar tabs."

The cheeky line references a rather large bill that has been raked up by TD's in the Dáil bar as of November 2015. 

According to the Sunday World, the ministers owe a total of €28,642 to the official government watering hole (and that was before all the inevitable Christmas parties).

And seeing as the current government has officially dissolved, it seems that Paddy Power wants to give a friendly reminder to ministers. 

"You’d think that any member of the 31st Dáil would understand a thing or two about servicing a debt, but unfortunately a few of them have been skimping on their tabs," said a spokesperson for the betting company. 

"We’re only too happy to give them a timely reminder before they hit the campaign trail."

Touché, Paddy Power, touché.
