IRELAND GOT A new political party today – but it doesn’t have a name yet.

Launched by former Fine Gael TD Lucinda Creighton and economic pundit Eddie Hobbs, the party is being organised under the hashtag #RebootIreland.

But Twitter is organising itself to suggest an actual moniker, under the rival #NameTheCreightonParty hashtag.

And others more straightforward.

Some are… almost hopeful.

Meanwhile, there have also been suggestions as to how the ‘Reboot Ireland’ tag was coined.
