Alexa, play Deja Vu by Olivia Rodrigo.
Over the weekend, Irish Twitter was abuzz with memes, hot takes and videos of never-ending queues, as for the second time this year, delays at Dublin Airport made headlines.
More than a thousand people are said to have missed their flights, and Minister of State for International Transport Hildegarde Naughton will meet with the DAA today to discuss the situation - you can read more about the severity of the situation HERE.
However, if you're just looking for airport sketches from Irish front-facing camera comedians and excellent memes, you've come to the right place.
First off, a shout out to Dublin Airport's own tweet addressing the delays - it's giving celebrity notes app apology.
Due to significant queues inside the terminal for check-in, bag drop & security, passengers queueing outside the terminal may not make their flight & may need to contact their airline to rebook. We sincerely apologise for the obvious frustration and inconvenience this may cause.

Of course, Emer Higgins's momentous campaign to change the name of Passport Express to reflect the service (rather than, oh I don't know, let's say, improving the service) was called upon for Gas Tweet™ purposes.
Hi Emer. Can you get them to change the name of 'Dublin Airport' to just 'Dublin'.
The name is very misleading as you can't actually fly out of it. Thanks x https://t.co/a5Q4gNLhG5

While politicians considered bringing the army in to deal with security queues, we all know there's one group of heroes who would have everyone through to Duty Free in a matter of minutes:

Along with Samantha Mumba showing us the only real way to make it onto your flight these days:
Personal milestones were achieved and celebrated while waiting in line:
Got pregnant queuing for Dublin airport. Baby was born before I reached security.

And these statues summed up the mood of pretty much every person who attempted to make it onto a flight over the weekend:
