Irish mammies are the beating heart of our entire nation - they've taught us always to eat our brekkie, to make sure our hair is dry before going asleep and never, ever to sit down on a cold step.
They've also been the stars of some absolutely quality viral videos that have made many a person in the country scream with laughter.
From the cutie who tries to whack a spider with her spatula, to the mammy who gets the surprise of her life when her two sons pop out of a box having arrived home all the way from Canada, they make for great entertainment.
