Bingo Dublin flats

Irish people will always find a way to keep themselves entertained so this outdoor bingo game at a block of Dublin flats comes as no surprise.

It is, however, absolutely hilarious.

As Dublin comes to terms with self-isolation amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, everyone is coming up with various ways of making the best out of being at home.

Netflix has never been more crucial, people are reading more and at-home recipes are in high demand.

All of that is fantastic but a group of residents living at a block of flats were treated to a particularly innovative kind of home entertainment this week.

A video, shared by Graham Merrigan, shows a bingo game organised at a block of flats – believed to be in Ringsned – that observes the recommended public health advice on social distancing and self-isolation.

The video has since been retweeted thousands of times and has been shared by the likes of Dara O’Briain and Joanne McNally, who have celebrated the brilliant Irishness of it.
