As the count rages on with the likelihood of a hung Dáil becoming a reality with each passing hour, it's entirely possible we could be doing this all again in a few weeks.
Nevertheless, the General Election has given Irish Twitter a chance to work those well-hewn comedy skills into the political arena. For the most part, a lot of people are horrified by the fact that Fianna Fáil managed to secure 23% in exit polls.

Smells like... horseshit.
I'd like an app that tweets bye Felicia at reactionaries that lose their seats #ge16

This could work in so many circumstances outside of the political sphere, to be fair.
