This evening.

Asked about the incident (see below), Tánaiste Leo Varadkar told journalists that what was thrown at him was a smoothie.

He also joked that he thought the person approaching him was singer Avril Lavigne because she was holding a skateboard; and explained that he understands the gardai want to speak to him about the incident and that conversation will likely take place next week.

He also said he was just after shooting a video about the new Covid-19 restrictions when the incident occurred and [the video] will be posted online later this evening.

He also said he luckily had a spare suit.


This afternoon.

Tanaiste Leo Varadkar gets a smoothie chucked on him at some velocity for reasons too numerous unknown at an unidentified park in Dublin.

His skateboard-toting assailant then turned and legged it.

Bodacious if pretty gnarly.

Any excuse.

This afternoon.

The Dáil at the Convention Centre, Dublin.

Questioned about the public health system being possibly overwhelmed this Winter, Tanaiste Leo Varadkar adopts the traditional route and blames Sinn Féin.

Never gets old.
