Mine are (in order)?
1. Dara O'Briain adverting Dublin pubs
2. George Hook advertising Sky TV
3. Hotels.com just (just because its very annoying)
Any other suggstions?
(Why do these minor celebs sell whatever credibility they have left to these companies?)

Miriam O'Callaghan advertising "get to know your neighbour" for Marcra Na Feirme.

Who the hell thought of her.

RTE's licence(Tax) fee ads treating you to go to court or Jail.Money goes to mediocre talent like Fianna Fails Ryan tubridy and Joe Duffy.Enough is enough.Sell RTE to the private sector and lets see how much Kenny,Duffy.and the rest of them earn.

Radio ads with dort-speak children or Gay Byrne - instant strike of mute button in both cases.
Gay Byrne ... yes, one can forget his way of talking down to the nation - until his rsa ads come on again, but they are short which is their only saving grace
he is certainly up there ...

"We've heard all the excuses and none of them work"

Yes, we've heard all the excuses for extortion ie the RTE TV licence and none of them work either.

I like Dara...:(

But you're A OK with all the rest!!...:)

Have to say I tune out on the ads...except if they have good music..did a telephone survey not that long ago ...and they asked the sponsors of radio and TV programmes.....Hadn't a fe*king clue!!....Not good...(for the companies involved....!!)

That one is a nightmare...
But somehow radio adverts are always more irritating to me at least
Perhaps because with tv, one can always change the channel
but with radio, one is already doing something else
so changing the channel is not so simple because its there in the backround ...
What if you don't have the remote
and said remote is in the hands of
someone seemingly immune to annoyances.:(
