€56,000 of our money will keep our TDs and Senators in top physical shape

The indulgent excesses incurred in Leinster House’s subsidized bar, plus the long sessions in the comfy chamber’s seats mean that our democratically elected representatives might put on the odd pound or three.

Fear not, cause the taxpayer will be there to lend a helping hand to those chubby politicians.

It has emerged today that a taxpayer-funded fitness training programme for TDs and Senators will commence when the Dáil resumes in September.

Fitness company InSpire, from Leopardstown Valley in Dublin will send a personal trainer to Leinster House to ensure that politicians are fit to run the country.

In total, €56,000 of public money will be spent on the programme.
