Dublin: 5 °C Thursday 22 March, 2018

Frankie Boyle said Dublin would be sober on Good Friday and Irish people corrected him

That’s what you think, Frankie.

COMEDIAN FRANKIE BOYLE is performing in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre tomorrow.

On Good Friday. When Irish people are legally prohibited from buying alcohol. Not exactly a great recipe for a comedy show, is it?

This news prompted Frankie Boyle to send this anxious tweet.

Oh, Frankie. Sweet, naive Frankie. You clearly don’t know the lengths Irish people will go to.

Fortunately, Irish people quickly set him straight on the matter.

You clearly don’t know us at all, Frankie.

You’ve said a lot of offensive things over the years, but this takes the biscuit.


Underestimate the Irish at your peril.


After all, what do you think we’re doing today?




Where there’s a will, there’s a way.



Clink, clink, Frankie.
