TDs learn about chillaxing


SIMON HARRIS, Fine Gael TD for Wicklow, was taken aback by the reaction to his use of the word “chillax” during Tuesday’s Public Accounts meeting.

The Dáil’s youngest deputy – he turns 26 next week – had to explain that “chillax” is a compound word, a combination of “chill” and “relax”.

A veteran Fianna Fáiler from Roscommon approached Simon the following day and asked: “Chillax. It that Latin?”
