The 2018 Budget is to be announced this afternoon, and while the rest of Ireland is hoping for regular old borrrrring things like tax cuts and USC shite, us Dubs have a few bigger hopes and dreams.

Here's what every true blue would secretly love to see announced.

1. Coppers Gold Cards for everyone

We spend every weekend there goddamit, give us the loyalty

2. Free pints in Temple Bar

We want to hang out in those pretty cobbled streets too y'know...

3. A fine for slow walkers on Grafton Street


4. Price cuts for chicken fillet rolls

We need our grub, and we need it now

5. Oh, and spice bags

The food that feeds a Dub's soul

6. No tax for Freddo Bars

The rising price of these chocolate froggies is a national disaster

7. Rent caps that actually reduce rent

No more paying 2k a month for a shoebox, please

8. Free public transport for all

Hey, we did say it was a dream world okay?

9. And unlimited G&Ts for the under 40s

Please Pascal Donohoe???
