A government TD has apologised after sharing an image online which suggested people do not want to pay for anything.
Noel Rock has also apologised specifically to Solidarity TD Paul Murphy whose image was used in the meme.
Deputy Rock said the post which he subsequently deleted was intended as a parody.
He has today apologised saying it was tasteless and insensitive and that it was not aimed at the people of Tallaght.
This was Noel Rock’s tweet, which he has deleted. This is a common political tactic - post a shock pic, get attention, later delete, half-apologise. pic.twitter.com/a5D7Ak9P5n— Dermot Looney (@dlooney) March 2, 2018
