10 Irish celebrities jumping on the #10YearChallenge bandwagon

They’re taking a walk down memory lane.

LOVE IT OR loathe it, the #10YearChallenge is still in full swing with more and more side-by-side snaps being posted by the hour.

Yes, whether you think it’s a shameful cry for ‘likes’ or just another lighthearted break from the regular stream of food snaps and #OOTDs on your feed, it’s likely that you haven’t been able to escape the trend.

With most of your mates, favourite bloggers and Hollywood A-listers getting involved, the hashtag is one of the most popular online trends of 2019 – granted there’s not a lot of competition. 

And while some people are posting a sweet throwback to a fairly similar version of themselves, some are sharing a shocking reminder of some of the beauty and style trends we’ve thankfully since said goodbye to.

Here are ten Irish celebrities who have taken part in the #10YearChallenge.


1. Tara O’Farrell

MUA Tara’s throwback post served as a reminder of how her insecurities led her to try and change her appearance as much as possible with blonde hair dye and dark tan. TBF, who can’t relate to that?


2. Cassie Stokes and Glenda Gilson

 Anyone who follows Cassie Stokes on the gram will have seen this pic before but while it may be an oldie, it’s still very much a goodie of her early days working alongside Glenda Gilson – at Oxegen no less. 


3. James Patrice

Before there was Snapchat and Instagram, and the nation knew nothing of fabulous Fron, there was 2009 James Patrice and how different that looked. 


4. Emma Kehoe

 Emma Kehoe is no stranger to a throwback pic, oftentimes sharing a look at some old pictures before she started her health and fitness journey. Her trip down memory lane reminded her of how she’s grown to love herself and have confidence in who she is. 


5. Laura Whitmore

 Laura Whitmore was just one of the many celebs who took the mick out of the hashtag by referencing the long-running belief that she is, in fact, an Olsen triplet. 


6. Marissa Carter

Before she was one of Ireland’s leading businesswomen, Marissa Carter was just like us – far too fond of the tweezers and a good pair of dangly earrings. 


7. Aisling Bea

Who hasn’t gone through a blonde phase? Well, Aisling Bea has and it was just when her comedy and acting career got started. Good times. 


8. Suzanne Jackson

 SoSu did a little cheating with her post as her throwback pic was actually from nearly 20 years ago, looking back at 17-year-old Suzanne. We’ll forgive her though for that trip down memory lane. 


9. Louise McSharry 

Unlike the majority, Louise McSharry’s post proves that there are some beauty habits and styles we stick to no matter how long it’s been. Hers? Her lack of interest in spending time putting on tan. PREACH!


10. Una Healy 

And finally, making everyone feel bad about their dodgy tan lines and awkward style choices is Una Healy. Yes, Una’s “throwback” proves nothing more than her genetics are flawless.
