Some absolute chancer is selling 'Ireland's coolest mobile number' for €400

Is your phone number cool?

HOW COOL IS your mobile phone number?

Uncool? Pretty cool? Very cool?

One thing is for sure — it’s not the coolest mobile number in Ireland.

How do we know this? Because Ireland’s “coolest mobile number” is currently for sale on for €400.


(For the record, the number is 086 2*10000 – the seller has hidden the last digit ‘for privacy’.)

What’s so cool about Ireland’s coolest mobile number?

Per the seller…

This is a classic and looks great.

And it’s hard to get.

And before the keyboard warriors start saying “I can get a good number in a store” YOU CANT.

Alright, mate.
