THEY may be used to exchanging verbal jibes across the Dail chamber - but Leo Varadkar took the fight against outspoken Socialist TD Paul Murphy to social media this afternoon.

The Minister for Health posted a photo of two different Paul Murphy tweets, taken six months apart.

The first, from the end of January this year, said: "Off to #Greece to support #Syriza. Will be tweeted here tomorrow a lot as we hopefully get a Left government that breaks austerity logic!".

In the second, which Murphy sent yesterday, said: "My #solidarity was never with Syriza leadership, it was with Greek people. It still is. They protest tonight against new austerity. #oxi".

The Minister's tweet has been re-tweeted over 230 times and favourited over 220 times.
