Alan Kelly Apologises For Lack Of Face Covering On Public Transport

North Tipperary TD and Labour Party leader Mr Alan Kelly has apologised after he was photographed not wearing any face covering on public transport.

Mr Kelly, who last month, criticised the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre for issuing what he believed was confusing and incoherent advice, which he claimed lead people to believe that visors were as effective as cloth face coverings, has since apologised to his electorate.

In a statement, Mr Kelly claimed that “While getting the Luas home last night, I obviously inadvertently didn’t have my mask on for a period and I want to apologise for this mistake. I was distracted while watching the Manchester United match on my phone and adjusting my headphones at the same time. We all make mistakes. Sorry,” he stated. [Hope he wasn’t using his work phone, paid for by taxpayers]

Still it gives us all great confidence here in Co. Tipperary, to learn that Mr Kelly is a strong supporter of public health guidelines, despite the fact that he doesn’t practise what he preaches.
