Phoebe was only dying to get out to Maynooth for a Christmas night sing song.

If you found yourself scrolling Twitter at any point over the weekend, you probably witnessed the sad but hot girl frenzy as reported sightings of Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal on Grafton Street flew in. Phoebe stans frantically brainstormed ways to accidentally on purpose bump into her, then started to ponder the larger idea of her spending Christmas in Paul’s hometown of Maynooth. Will she get stuck talking to Paul’s uncle, who repeatedly asks if she’s “still at the music?” Will she be forced to watch the Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas Special? Has she seen the Naas Ball yet? These questions and more were offered out to the ether yesterday with no official answers as of yet, but more as we have it gals.

12.47pm – The first sightings are reported

2:30pm – We start to imagine what Christmas Day at the Mescals might be like

4:01pm – The reported sightings start to get more creative

9:48pm – General ponderings about the reality of Phoebe Bridgers spending Christmas in Ireland continue

If you’ve followed the Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal love story ever since Phoebe’s fateful post-Normal People horny tweet and the meet cute of an Insta live that followed, no doubt you’ll be as buzzed as the rest of us to know they’ve landed on Irish soil. Let’s just hope we don’t scare them off.
