10 things Irish lads love

Besides their mammies, obviously.

WE GAVE YOU TEN THINGS Irish girls love, now it’s the boys’ turn.

Irish lads are fairly simple creatures, with needs and wants amounting to not much more than food, FIFA and the odd pint or two.

Here are 10 things that they love most passionately.

A pint of milk with their dinner

Nothing completes a plate of spuds and gravy quite like a big glass of milk. Sure aren’t you a growing boy still?

Pick your poison – be it cider, beer or stout, the refreshing, rejuvenating properties of a pint are incomparable after a particularly long day.

No matter where, no matter when, a line from one of these bad boys is always hilarious. Always. Always?

Banter

Banter is a mysterious thing – it cannot be described concretely. But it’s almost definitely different to “the craic”, and it’s an essential quality in most people and activities.

When banter goes too far. Something may get destroyed in the process, be it an object or someone’s dignity.

While Amy Huberman is the one all the Irish girls want to be, Laura is the girl all the Irish lads want to be on. Probably because she appears to be “good banter”.

OK, this may be a love/hate relationship – but there are very few Irish lads who wouldn’t want their jobs.

If you’re ever wondering what that smell coming from the back of the bus is, it’s probably this.

Playing FIFA with the lads

Going out to a nightclub is great and all but sometimes you just want to get the lads around, have a few cans, and stay in playing FIFA. It’s not all about scoring girls, you know.

When Irish lads do go out however, you bet your boots they’ll square up to any lad who dares threaten anyone they love. It’s a matter of honour, of course.
