Irish People Losing Their Mind Over The Snow Is The Internet's New Happiest Thing

Everyone loves snow. Especially these guys.

Posted on

This is apparently a rare occurence – according to the Global Post Irish winters tend to be wet and green "because of the flow of temperate ocean air from the Atlantic". This survey (mind the URL) from the Irish Meteorological Service suggests Ireland gets more snow than some people think, but anyway, we're getting off topic.

The fact is that the internet is really loving Irish people flipping out over snow. This video has just passed one million views.

And this video of a bewildered teen is also beginning to blow up.

For those confused, he says that his mum made him go to school and if he stayed out in that weather for too long he'd get frostbite.

He is but minutes away from becoming a meme.

And so it came to pass. His name is Ruairí McSorley, and he's a very talented impressionist.

But there are plenty of memes going around anyway.

Olaf has been repeatedly sighted.

Ireland’s first snowman of 2015 was built in Donegal, & he looks a little like #Frozen's Olaf! http://t.co/Y44SxGBHRF
