There was a serious 'separated at birth' moment on Claire Byrne Live last night

Can *you* tell them apart?

ANYONE WHO WATCHED last night’s episode of Claire Byrne Live may have been taken aback by the sight of two bald bespectacled men who looked *eerily* similar.

Social Democrats leader Stephen Donnelly and economist Dan O’Brien were seated next to each other on a panel and Twitter was quick to make gags about their likeness.


Is this some sort of science experiment? Is this what we’re witnessing?

No, but seriously. Are they brothers?

Hmm, what does this remind us of?

Even the poor RTÉ graphics had trouble telling them apart

(That’s not Stephen Donnelly, you see.)

And yes, Stephen and Dan were both in on the joke

It Takes Two remake, anyone?
