You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off…

Got this from reader Niall. It’s from the Tribune’s latest news feed… Martin Cullen goes from Racecourse to Golf Club after the door in his Army helicopter falls off at 500 feet… Is it just me coins the headline de jour

  • Spending cuts kicking in already I see.

  • Ri Na Deise

    Who had the spanner?

  • Glensman

    What’s the minister doing using a helicopter to go from a golf course anyway? The train no use any more?

  • Greagoir O’ Frainclin

    Pity he didn’t fall out!

    Remember he spent 50 million euro on electronic voting machines that were never used.

  • Harry Flashman

    Hang on a minute did I read that correctly the hugely important minister for tourism needed an air corps helicopter to span the huge trackless wastes from Waterford to Killarney in order to deliver a speech?

    I thought those ministers down there all had Mercedes and drivers, now they need to be flown by helicopters.

    Is there scope for budget cut backs in the Republic do you think?
