Labour European election candidate has a dig at Luke Flanagan and Dustin the Turkey in one tweet

It is true that Dustin didn't have the best time in Eurovision but most Irish acts have struggled in recent years and as we all remember, he probably would have been elected President of Ireland a few years back, if he had been on the ballot of course.

We await to see what Luke, or Dustin, come back with on Twitter.

Thanks to Thomas Curran for sending our way...
