The Dealer laughed at an interaction in the Dáil on Wednesday with Longford farmers linked to an Oscar-winning movie.

Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghail wryly retorted to Fianna Fáil TD Joe Flaherty who was extolling the virtue of the Longford IFA’s billboard campaign to promote farmers and farm produce.

“The deputy is making that sound like Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri,” Ó Fearghail said.

Minister Charlie McConalogue paid tribute to the Longford IFA campaign.
