I 'moustache' you a question: 23 Irish politicians and their facial hair

Can you guess which beard or moustache belongs to which Irish politician? Includes bonus Willie O’Dea.

DOWN THROUGH THE years Ireland has had some great political figures as well as some not so great ones. But it has also had some great facial hair on its politicians.

Be it a beard or a moustache, some of our best-known TDs, senators and presidents have crafted some remarkable facial hair.

Now, it’s easy to think of Willie O’Dea and Dick Spring but there have been others too. What about Douglas Hyde or current serving politicians like John Halligan?

The one thing they all have in common is great facial hair but can you match the beard or moustache to the politician?

Why not take our quiz. It’s hard we’ll admit but a couple of clues are that all of the names we have mentioned so far feature, the Labour Party dominates and there is a bonus Willie O’Dea.

Let us know your answers in the comments. Good luck:
