Newstalk Breakfast's Shane Coleman and Ciara Kelly react to the controversial Bank of Ireland ad that has caused quite a stir on social media... 

Bank of Ireland has sparked a quite heated debate on social media after publishing an ad for its mortgage packages.

The ad appeared on Twitter and highlighted the case of a couple who moved in with parents to save for a deposit. It has since been removed, alongside a full interview on the Bank of Ireland website about the same couple's mortgage journey.
