More car trouble for Dana with parking ticket

HERE'S one man who won't be giving Dana his number one.

It appears the presidential candidate's car is getting more attention than her.

First she was in trouble for stopping in a disabled bay, then there was the infamous tyre blow-out -- and now she's run foul of a parking warden.

Her campaign team was hit with a €40 fine after the car was parked illegally in Drogheda, Co Louth.

Warden Eddie McGuirk would have no doubt who he was issuing the ticket to as the Peugeot 508 was covered with posters.

The independent candidate's husband Damian picked up the ticket as bemused shoppers looked on.

What did Dana do? She crossed the road towards St Oliver Plunkett. A few last minute prayers maybe.
