(1) Pay for ham sandwiches and cans of Fanta for everyone at the Ireland-Serbia game in Croker in May.

(4) Pay Bertie Ahern’s make-up bill for the next 12 months.

(5) Pay the VAT for (4)

(6) Pay the fee for My Bloody Valentine at the Electric Picnic

(7) Pay for the Cork hurlers, footballers and county board to spend a week together at a luxury spa hotel working it all out.

(9) Pay for a load of new telephone polls, copper wires and fibre-optic cables

(10) Pay for a few new DJs at 2FM
