According to figures obtained by the Irish Independent, TD's clocked up a bar bill of over €10,000 on the night the Dáil sat into the early hours debating the abortion legislation.
The massive bill was racked up on the same night the controversial 'lapgate' incident took place.
Figures published in the Irish Sun today reveal 59 quarter-bottles of wine were consumed along with around 300 pints and almost 50 spirits.
The figures are taken from till receipts in both the members and visitors bars.
The members bar stayed open until 5am in the morning while TD's were in the chamber participating in the debate.
