During these times of shouty debates on Vincent Browne and general financial fear it sometimes feels like there isn’t a lot to smile or laugh about.
My 21 year old brother and his friends embraced their creative energies and took the time to make this original video in homage to Ireland making it through to this year’s Euros.
Now I know they’re no Jedward but I got such joy watching it (and not just because the little bro is in it!) as I was looking at young people genuinely having a bit of a laugh and doing something a bit cool and different. It really cheered me up and made me proud.
I said I’d send it to Broadsheet as I’m a big fan and I know you’re great for the aul’ patriotic stuff!
I also wanted to send it as I think my bro is probably the nicest, kindest person I know and I’d love people to get the chance to see him do his musical thing as I think he’s brilliant and shiny and lovely.
It would embarrass the pants off him if he knew I was talking about how fabulous he is. As his older sister I LOVE embarrassing him!
