Irish lads use Times Square billboard to share anti-water charges message with Enda Kenny


FORGET SUPERMACS. THIS is the best Times Square billboard you’ll see this week.

A group of six Irish lads visiting New York City dropped by American Eagle Outfitters to make some purchases.

The Times Square branch of the apparel store includes a customer experience called 15 Seconds of Fame in which customers are invited to have their photos taken and share a message.

Fifteen minutes later, the photo, customer name, hometown and message is projected on the 25-storey LED screen outside.

While many choose to share sappy messages, these Irishmen decided to share an anti-water charges message directed at none other than Enda Kenny.

The lads, otherwise known as ‘Poppy’s Possy,’ hail from Mayo, Offaly and Kerry.

Brian O’Malley, one of the lads in question, told that, despite the strong words, the message isn’t meant to be taken seriously.

It was a light hearted gesture made in good spirit.

Your move, Enda.
