Irish Twitter reacts to the 2022 Budget

Fiona Frawley

Sometimes, watching the news can be a traumatic experience. Luckily, Irish Twitter is always close at hand to put a comical spin on things.

The details of the 2022 budget were revealed yesterday, with free contraception for women under 25, the €5 increase in welfare payments and half price public transport for young people all proving to be big topics of conversation.

Look. I won’t be commenting too much on the subject. I’m not a money expert or an economist, and I don’t have a notion what kind of difference an increase of €50 for income tax credits actually makes. Something I do know, is how to round up the funniest tweets on any given subject. It’s the thing that brings me the most joy in life. So without further ado, here’s a list of some of the best responses to yesterdays budget news.

And of course, an honourable mention to all the comedic video responses:

If we don’t laugh we’ll cry, am I right kids?
