Eva, the Limerick Mam, is the true star of Gogglebox Ireland

We love you, Eva.

SINCE IT LAUNCHED last year, Gogglebox Ireland has quickly become one of the highlights of the television week. After all, what could be more charming and cosy than watching Irish people rip the piss out of The Late Late Show?

One of the show’s undisputed stars is Eva Ryan from Monaleen, Co. Limerick. Along with her two teenage sons, Eva never fails to entertain with her witty commentary and, er, occasional slip of the tongue.

She says what we’re all thinking.

Her reaction to Linda Martin on last week’s Late Late Show? “F**king hell.”

Same, girl.

She never takes any guff from her teenage sons.

She’s the type of Mam to tell you to just try something on in the middle of Penneys. “Nobody’s looking at you. Get over yourself.”

Seriously, nothing embarrasses her.

Take, for instance, when they watched an episode of Kevin McGahern’s America last year and Eva had this to say about cam girls:

Or how about when she uttered the words, “Give us an auld finger more like!” on national television.


She’s just so loveable.



We bet she has excellent taste in scented candles and cushions. And probably gives lovely gift sets out at Christmas.

But best of all? Her bond with her two sons is beyond endearing.

Would watch a sitcom based on their lives, tbh.
