Health Minister Leo Varadkar brought his Fine Gael party colleague Pat Deering to task, after he misspelt his name on Twitter.

Mr Deering was reprimanded by the minister after he posted a message on social media yesterday.

Mr Deering, who is a TD for Carlow/Kilkenny, tweeted: “Great group of YFG canvassers in Carlow today with Minister Veradakar.”

He accompanied the tweet with a picture of Mr Varadkar with the canvassers.

The sloppy spelling of the minister’s name was not long in drawing a robust response.

Shortly after 3pm, Mr Varadkar responded: “Thanks for the tweet Pat but it’s ‘Varadkar’. Or @campaignforleo if you prefer!” Well, that’s him told!
