With just four days to go until Budget day, we took to the streets of Dublin to test the political knowledge of the Irish public.

We decided to keep it easy with a picture round - but it turned out to be more challenging than we anticipated.

It would appear Minister for Transport Shane Ross bears an uncanny resemblance to Minister for Communications Denis Naughten based on our research.

And Dubliner Paschal Donohoe can be easily mistaken for Minister Leo Varadkar.

Also, Pascal Sheehy will be pleased to know he’s been upgraded to Minister for Reading the News.

On the whole, most of these people failed to recognise Mary Mitchell O’Connor, Michael Creed, Paschal Donohoe and Denis Naughten.

One person even asked if the Minister for Public Expenditure had "ever been on telly before".

Not being recognised by the Irish public may be a good thing for these Ministers if the Budget doesn’t go down well on October 11th!
