16 times Irish politicians were a little bit mortifying on Twitter

TDs — they’re just like us.

1. The time Sinn Féin TD Kathleen Funchion accidentally tweeted a link to a game about a talking cat

2. The time newly elected Fine Gael TD Noel Rock shamelessly retweeted a person who called him “dreamy”.


3. The time Fianna Fáil’s Michael McGrath was also disappointed with Ray D’Arcy’s interview with Dean Strang.

4. The time Barry Cowen identified with Rocky a little too much, perhaps.

5. The time Eoghan Murphy didn’t quite get the point of hashtags

Any other thoughts, Eoghan?

6. The time Fine Gael’s Josepha Madigan made clear that, much like Garfield, she is not a fan of Mondays.

If this retweet is anything to go by, she is also prone to bouts of Sunday Night Fear.


8. The time Charlie Flanagan tweeted about gees

*immature chuckle*

9. The time John Halligan retweeted a tweet to make Donald Trump stop running for President

If only it were that easy, John.


10. The time Regina Doherty outed herself as Twitter stalker

“Regina Doherty TD Retweeted”

TDS — they’re just like us!


11. The time Joan Burton made the biggest Mam joke in history

12. The time Sinn Féin’s Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire lamented The Big Bang Theory’s longevity

Was Donnchadh elected on an anti-Big Bang Theory platform? We can only hope so.


13. The time Peadar Tóibín was unabashed in his love for the Earth Pics Twitter account

He just looooves Earth.




14. The time Éamon Ó Cuív commiserated with the Mayor of Boston about… Zayn Malik


15. The time Sean Haughey wished his constituency a Happy Valentine’s Day with this personalised graphic

The Barry White of Dublin Bay North.


16. Finally, an oldie but a goodie…

Oh, Alan.
