Leo Varadkar quoted Mean Girls in his latest Government Buildings speech

We’ve previously had Seámus Heaney, Dermot Kennedy, Lord of The Rings and even The Terminator.

TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR’S quotations have been somewhat of a running joke during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We’ve had Seámus Heaney, Dermot Kennedy, Lord of The Rings and even The Terminator.

It now appears that Varadkar has won a bet by quoting a line from Tina Fey’s Mean Girls.

Towards the end of his speech this evening in which he updated the country on plans to lift restrictions, Varadkar said: 

Some have asked whether there’s a limit to what we can achieve. My answer is that limit does not exist.

That line is the same as what was delivered by Lindsay Lohan’s Cady Heron in winning a statewide math contest.

While this may seem somewhat of a coincidence, Lord of the Rings actor Sean Astin had bet Varadkar “50 quid” on RTÉ 2FM that he “couldn’t fit Mean Girls” into the next speech. 

Well, it appears he has.
