RTE typo sends twitter into a state of hysteria

Picture of RTE's amusing typo during yesterday evening's news (screen grab)

It seems that Minister Simon Harris was issued with a new portfolio without anyone knowing about it.

Minister Harris was interviewed  yesterday evening on the Six One News about the recent flooding, but the caption under his name didn’t quite match with his current position as Minister for State, Office of Public Works.

RTE’s unfortunate typo had viewers wondering what the new title meant exactly and the world of twitter was sent into a state of hysteria.



Mr Harris found the funny side to it and in a tweet to the Daily Edge, he said: ” And I was finding the OPW demanding enough without taking on another office as well ! #typos!”

It gave us here at wicklownews.net a good giggle as well.
