Cabbie Brian McGovern’s shirt has become the subject of much discussion in Ireland.
The 42-year-old Dubliner was spotted wearing jeans, a turtleneck and a jacket in a public transport bus.
It is not clear whether the shirt was an advert for a new cabbier, or a reference to the fact he was wearing jeans.
In a statement, the Irish Taxi Association said it “regrets the t-shirts of any cabbies”.
What is the Irish Cabbiest?
Irish taxi drivers have been making headlines since at least 2013 when a video of a man driving a taxi in Cork went viral.
In the video, a man in a tshirt can be seen driving through a traffic jam.
He asks the driver to stop, then gets out of the taxi and punches him in the face.
The man in the video has since been convicted of assault causing actual bodily harm.
A series of similar incidents have been recorded in recent months, and drivers are being investigated for being intoxicated and failing to wear a seat belt.
The Cork taxi driver who was filmed has been fined €500.
What is an ‘Uber’ driver?
An Uber driver can be a taxi driver in Ireland, but they do not have to be licensed or insured.

What are the rules for cabbying in Ireland?
Taxi drivers are required to have a minimum of four hours of training before they are allowed to drive.

They are also required to attend two hours of a four-hour driving school.
The Association of Cork Taxi Drivers has urged taxi drivers to be more responsible and report any incidents of abuse to police.
The Cabbies Association of Ireland said: “The Association of the Irish Cab Drivers does not condone or endorse the use of alcohol in any form or fashion.
The best way to maintain a safe environment is to be mindful of your surroundings.” “
Cab drivers should be more respectful of the road and the road user, including passengers.
The best way to maintain a safe environment is to be mindful of your surroundings.”

What’s the difference between an Irish taxi and a foreign taxi?
Irish taxis are generally not registered as taxi services in the UK and have been banned by Transport for London.
The Irish taxi industry is regulated in the European Union (EU), and is part of the European Passenger Transport Association (EPTA).
This means that foreign cab drivers do not need to register as taxis in the EU.
This means foreign drivers in the Irish taxi market are generally exempt from the requirements to obtain a licence.
