Fun at the Fair!

For those of you who don't know, the biggest funfair in Dublin is currently located on Merrion Square - and I'm not talking about the Dáil.

A rather large amusement park has been set up outside the Taoiseach's department as part of the St Patrick's Week (Month?) festival. I live around the corner from it and I can attest to the large numbers that the fair has been attracting.

I think that it would be a good idea to keep the funfair there permanently. The Taoiseach should seriously consider it as he could co-opt all the regalia of the fair for party political purposes.

Think of what all the promotional blurbs could be for the rides and attractions:

"Come and be taken for a ride on the Bertie Taoishocker Rollercoaster!"

"Go and get fleeced by renowned Candy Floss Man Cowen"

"Take a spooky and disturbing journey on the extra-scary Tribunal Ghost Train"

"Visit the PD Hall of Mirrors and behold their many deformed faces!"

"Take a spin on the All-Party Coalition Merry Go-Round!"

"And don't forget: come and play a game of pin the tail on the Cullen donkey!"
