This is no ordinary ‘come meet me in the Dáil for a cup of tea and meet a few Ministers’ competition. Ah no Michael has gone for the yoof vote.
He is giving away 20 Oxygen Weekend passes on a Facebook competition – to constituents only mind you! These tickets are worth a minimum of €224 each. 20 tickets therefore would have set the TD back €4480 – if he paid full price for them? And I’m sure he has.
So if you live in his constituency and want to enter you can find out more here.
Now to all the other TD’s developing social media outlets what wonderful items are you going to be giving away to your constituents who friend or like you on Facebook? I’m not recommending this strategy by the way. Bribery anyone? I can think of a lot better uses for €4480 – is this what ‘walking around money’ is now going to be used for?
