What's wrong with Kenneth Egan?

U ok councillor?

COUNCILLOR KENNETH EGAN is having a tough day.

At least, the Olympic silver-medalist boxer has tweeted as much, wondering why he ‘bothers his bollox’.

The tweet has been quickly retweeted nearly 30 times and was even favourited by Garda Kieran from Love/Hate.

PastedImage-40890 has contacted the Fine Gael councillor for Clondalkin to see what the tweet was in reference to, but we have not received a response.

Hope you’re ok, Kenneth.

4FM’s Mike Hogan says that Egan may have been hacked.

Kenneth wasn’t hacked, he just needed a rant.

Which is good to know. Glad you’re ok, councillor.
