'THIS is what Twitter was made for,' was a reply to an ironic tweet sent by Lidl Ireland this Tuesday in the aftermath of an attempted smash and grab using a digger at a McDonald's in Limerick.
The incident happened at approximately 2.50am this Tuesday morning March 20 at the McDonald’s at the Castletroy Shopping Centre on the Dublin Road.
Tweeting at McDonalds, Lidl Ireland said: "Hope you're okay hun x" - a clear reference to the recent damage caused to a Lidl in Tallaght, where a store was demolished by a digger during Storm Emma, causing a national outcry.
