Memes are something we all hold close to heart and could never live without, they’re addictive (in a good way).
They’ve become a part of everyday life.
You wake up in the morning – look at memes.
On your break at work – look at memes.
On the toilet – looking at memes.
You know they say the last thing you think about before going asleep is something you love (memes).
Something we don’t see too much of is Irish memes… but trust me they are out there and they are hilarious.
So, here are some of Ireland’s funniest and iconic memes.
1. Ass On A Bus
2013 was a pretty wild year but nothing was more wild than a man trying to get his donkey onto the 150 bus.

2. Fionn The Rapping Farmer
In 2015 The Late Late Toy Show blessed us with the most adorable 8 year old rapper ever, Fionn. What a legend.
3. Don’t Take Risks On Treacherous Roads
2015 was a beautiful year for Irish memes and Teresa Mannion’s ‘Don’t Make Unnecessary Journeys’ became a viral meme worldwide.
4. Gerald Kean Peel Potatoe
In 2014 Gerald Kean made his mark on twitter with this confusing tweet, is it a recipe? Is it a way of summoning Satan? Who knows?
5. Unimpressed Sharon Ní Bheoláin
RTÉ has had its fair amount of fails but one of the funniest was Sharon Ní Bheoláin’s reaction to modern dance, it wasn’t long before she became a meme.
6. The Man Who Slipped On Ice
Speaking of RTÉ fails, the man who slipped on the ice was one of the best fails on Irish Telly, after being aired almost 7 years ago this meme remains a classic, it even got its own brief documentary.
7. Irish Language Memes
These memes peaked in 2012 but who’s to say that they’re not a classic.
8. 1916 Memes
With last year being the 100 year commemoration of the 1916 Easter Rising, obviously 1916 memes made a big comeback
9. Irish Republican Memes
Irish Republican Memes aren’t as popular now as they used to be but every so often one tends to creep up.
10. Irish Graffiti
Irish graffiti is an art in itself, and automatically becomes a funny meme. Graffiti isn’t funny but witty ones deserve a bit of appreciation.
11. Irish signs
Improv Irish signs are like a little piece of gold, they’re f*cking hilarious.
