YouTube has revealed the top ten most watched videos on the site this year.

The list - which excludes music videos from major labels - was topped by the Conor McGregor tribute song penned by Kildare teacher Mick Konstantin.

So popular was the song it features twice in the top ten - the original version placing in sixth.

Coláiste Lurgan’s ever-popular covers as Gaeilge of pop songs

 have made them a perennial favourite in YouTube Rewind’s list, and this year is no different: they landed at number four thanks to their version of the smash hit Despacito (aka “I Do Dhiaidh Chomh”) during the summer.

Finbar Furey and Christy Dignam's Late Late Show performance in January also made the list while Irish brothers Seán and Conor Price performing a modern take on Bob Dylan’s 'All Along the Watchtower' on X Factor also made the cut.
