'Fags are now a €1,000 a box in Ireland'- The best reactions to Budget 2017

The Budget 2017 has been announced and one thing was always certain: not everybody was going to be happy.
From sugar taxes to pension increases, social media users dissected Michael Noonan and Paschal Donohoe’s first Budget as it was announced today.
The world seemed to end for some as the price of cigarettes increased to €11 and the details of the first time buyer's allowance was announced.
Twitter users did manage to agree on one thing: The sheep came out on top with €25 million as part of a new animal welfare scheme.
I have SUCH a crush on Michael McGrath right now. Such a huge crush. #Budget2017— Muirenn Casey (@KingRatCasey) October 11, 2016
Fags are now a €1,000 a box in Ireland. Meath Street will be thronged on Saturday. #Budget2017— Stephanie Lord (@stephie08) October 11, 2016
Can't concentrate on my work, that 0.5% cut in the USC has me too excited thinking about what I'll do with that extra €1.07 #Budget2017— Ms Tutu (@Ms_F_Tutu) October 11, 2016
