Dáil fitness center remains largely idle, while sapping almost 50k a year from the taxpayer




Seems like our political representatives are much more into keeping their wallets fit, rather than their physique.

It has transpired today that the state-of-the-art, taxpayer-funded fitness center is lying pretty much idle all the time, as an average of just one TD per day used it last year.

Yet, the taxpayer must still foot the bill of almost 50k a year for the upkeep of the facility.

Meanwhile, it is understood that the Dáil bar is faring much better business wise, with hundreds of thousands of euro spent on booze and cigarettes between TDs, senators, staff, and visitors every year.

What do you think of such a waste of space and money? Let us know in the comments below.
