The new season of 'Room to Improve' is in full swing on Sunday nights on RTÉ One and with it is the excellent running commentary on Twitter. The main trending topic over last night's show was the budget, which was a huge amount to begin with but somehow Dermot managed to go over it.
The featured house on this week's 'Room to Improve' was a detached 1950s two-bedroom property in Rathfarnham in Dublin which owners Yvonne and Adrian bought for the princely sum of €530,000. The house was in need of a massive restoration and the couple had an impressive budget of €280,000 to do so.

When dubs are on #roomtoimprove and they say they spent €530,000 buying a shitty house and €280,000 to spend on renovating, that’s €810,000 🤢🤢🤢🤢 Imagine the size of a house you’d build out the country with that

Even with all that money though, they went over budget. A whole €110,00 over budget.
#roomtoimprove is dermot responsible for the cost of the children’s hospital by any chance?
