"Sure, where else would ye rather be?"

1. The gas things Irish people say:

“That heat would kill a bull”

“It’s fierce close”

"I'll tell you one thing lads, I'm bet"



2. We get VERY smug

“Mary’s gone to Spain, and it’s spillin’ over there!”


3. The barbeques come out

And every Irish mammy does what she knows how - singes the meat til its black




4. People jump off stuff...

Rocks, famine ships, piers... you name it


5. Everyone always finds an excuse for why they're sunburned:

 “I missed a bit”

6. We know we're not supposed to sit on the grass...

But we just. Can't. Help. It
