    Default Which are the most annoying adverts?

    Mine are (in order)?
    1. Dara O'Briain adverting Dublin pubs
    2. George Hook advertising Sky TV
    3. Hotels.com just (just because its very annoying)
    Any other suggstions?
    (Why do these minor celebs sell whatever credibility they have left to these companies?)

    Miriam O'Callaghan advertising "get to know your neighbour" for Marcra Na Feirme.

    Who the hell thought of her.

    RTE's licence(Tax) fee ads treating you to go to court or Jail.Money goes to mediocre talent like Fianna Fails Ryan tubridy and Joe Duffy.Enough is enough.Sell RTE to the private sector and lets see how much Kenny,Duffy.and the rest of them earn.

    Gay Byrne ... yes, one can forget his way of talking down to the nation - until his rsa ads come on again, but they are short which is their only saving grace

    "We've heard all the excuses and none of them work"

    Yes, we've heard all the excuses for extortion ie the RTE TV licence and none of them work either.
