No witch's hat for Joan in Halloween hustings
The Tánaiste was about to enter Moloughney's Restaurant on Vernon Avenue in Clontarf, when she bumped into George and Ringo. Or maybe it was Paul and Ringo. Abbey Robinson and Ciara O'Sioran were decked out as a pair of Sergeant Peppers for the Halloween craic, and had nipped out of school to get some lunch.
"I was in school when The Beatles were around," Joan Burton told them, before admitting she had been more of a Rolling Stones fan.
Joan had decided to sniff the post-budget air yesterday, now that the Dáil denizens have again farcically decided to reward their five whole weeks of hard graft since the summer break by buggering off for the entirety of next week.
