Even President Higgins has to trek to the ATM for cash every now and then
The president stopped off at an ATM in Cork to get some cash on a recent visit.

MICHAEL D HIGGINS is very special to us.

He’s just one of us, really. And even HE gets caught short of cash every so often.

President Higgins was spotted taking out money at an ATM on Winthrop Street during his recent visit to Cork

…and we bet he was praying they had a few tenners to dispense.


The President and his wife Sabina were in town yesterday to visit the headquarters and training centre of the Irish Guide dogs for the blind to mark their 40th year.

Maybe he wanted to buy them some treats and the shop wouldn’t take card?

It’s not the first time he’s been spotted using an ATM, like a damn commoner

Remember this time he was spotted queuing up on Baggot Street?

What a time to be alive.

Beat that, Obama.
