This Foil Arms & Hog skit brilliantly parodies RTÉ's coverage of the 1916 centenary

RTÉ did a great job on the coverage of the centenary events over the weekend – but comedy trio Foil Arms & Hog couldn’t resist taking the mick anyway.

This skit follows a hapless RTÉ presenter as he discovers that all the guests booked for his Remembering The Heroes programme…don’t really remember the right heroes.

“He was actually awarded the Victoria Cross.”
