Leo Varadkar gave a shout out to Rubberbandits in his weekly address for giving him advice on 'sound quality'

Limerick’s finest have influence on the Taoiseach, it seems.

LAST WEEK, TAOISEACH Leo Varadkar shared his inaugural weekly video address on Facebook.

Noting that the weekly addresses had previously been done in “written form,” Varadkar announced that he was breaking with tradition and releasing the weekly address via video from here on out.

His maiden voyage into vlogging didn’t go quite so well with many lamenting the audio issues.

The lacklustre audio inspired Rubberbandits to weigh in and offer An Taoiseach and his team advice for recording any future weekly addresses.

Tip: don’t record in a room that’s full of echoes.

The Limerick duo even went so far as to share a link to an article offering advice for novice vloggers.

This week, An Taoiseach and his team were careful not repeat the same mistakes. They invested in new equipment and found a more suitable location.

And Leo was careful to credit the Rubberbandits.

“Hello and welcome to my second weekly message,” he began. “First of all I want to thank the Rubberbandits for their advice on sound quality. As you can see I’ve taken their advice and invested in a lapel mic.”

He then gestured towards his newly procured lapel mic.
