Three Irish men shortlisted for 'best jobs in the world'
Rich Cullen is running around Australia in a green body suit as part of his campaign, while Allan Dixon is getting Irish politicians to do weird things with their hands.

THREE IRISH MEN have been shortlisted from hundreds of thousands of entries in Tourism Australia’s Best Jobs in the World campaign.

Wicklow native Rich Cullen is already living in Melbourne and is one of 25 people vying for the Lifestyle Photographer position. The winner will receive a six-month photography contract with Time Out magazine in the city, as well as a $100,000 salary.
