2017 was a grand ol' year for viral sensations in Ireland. We had the famous 'bat video' and a catchy Conor McGregor song.
YouTube today announced today the annual list of Ireland’s top trending videos and music videos for the past year, and it seems that in 2017 the people of Ireland searched most for videos that had a distinctly green tint to them.
It is perhaps no surprise that a tribute song to the king of self-promotion, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, is our most-watched video of 2017. Not only that, but it was so popular that Mick’s original upload also made it into 6th place, bagging him an enviable two spots in the top 10!
