Our ‘democratically’ elected representatives are a thirsty bunch, it seems, and even though the ordinary citizenry funds their boozing ways, they still find avenues to leave bills unpaid.
It has emerged that the Dáil bar is owed some €5,400 euro in unpaid tabs.
The names of the debtors have not been released, yet one of them is said to be owing €340.
It has also emerged that the ubiquitious pint of home-brewed Guinness is the elite’s favorite nepenthe.
Members of the Dáil and the Seanad enjoy a special privilege that enables them to get free booze ‘on account’ in the Leinster House bar.
