AH, IS THERE anything more beautiful and evocative than the phrase “big bag of cans”?

It instantly conjures up memories of baking in the sun and drinking cheap lager that tastes like a penny that laid undiscovered in the back of a pair of jeans. Fine, fine memories.

With Ireland currently in the midst of a heatwave (read: sustained sunshine with no rain), what better time to honour the Bag Of Cans™? 

Because nothing says “It’s summer and the Leaving Cert is coming up” like a big bag of cans.

It’s in the dictionary.

It’s the highlight of every sunny day.

Bag Of Cans are so beloved that they’ve now reached meme status.

Just look at this selection of tweets from Humans of the Sesh:


A thing of beauty.

The phrase just trips off the tongue. Look at how easily it slides into Galway Girl…
