How to apply an ng-if (or other conditional) in multiple <td> elements while keeping it DRY

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I want to display a number of <td> elements based on the same condition. I am currently doing that with multiple, identical, ng-if directives, as such:

<tbody>
  <tr>
    <td> Display unconditionally </td>
    <td> Same here... (imagine more columns) </td>
    ...
    <td ng-if='myCondition'> Display based on condition </td>
    <td ng-if='myCondition'> And the same </td>
    <td ng-if='myCondition'> for plenty of columns </td>
  </tr>
</tbody>

While this works one can’t help but notice all the repetition. Any ideas on how I could DRY that up?
