People born in, living in and those who have emigrated from Ireland will understand Irish humour. It's a rare mix of innocence, boldness and wit, and is pretty much the gift that keeps on giving.

Mixed with the desired addition of notions and/or a good play on words - you just can't get much better.

Check these 12 out to see what we mean.

1. This note to canvassers in Donegal 

Bonus points for creativity.

2. This article by the Leinster Leader 

Clearly losing the run of themselves.

If in doubt, tweet.

9. This utterly bizarre video made by two Fermanagh brothers

We're not sure if they're drunk or just mental.


I can't watch this without crying.
