16 of the greatest Irish TV howlers of 2016

So many memories.

2016 MAY NOT have been the best year, but it sure did gift us a lot of television howlers.

Let’s take a look back…

5. When this little kid was so done with Ireland AM’s fashion segment that he just marched out of the studio

Not even Celia Holman Lee could keep him around.

6. When Evelyn Cusack’s teleprompter failed her and she was forced to wax lyrical about “eh, weather systems”

7. Speaking of Evelyn, remember when she was caught rapid making the best “Oops” face ever?

8. When Dáithí Ó Sé dared to utter the word ‘bra’ at the Rose of Tralee

And Mammies across Ireland gasped. 

9. When Tipperary’s Bubbles O’Dwyer lost the run of himself after winning the All Ireland…

Mind your language, Bubbles

10. When Steve-O absolutely horsed into rocket leaves on The Seven O’Clock Show and Lucy Kennedy didn’t even notice

11. When Tubs accidentally called Katie Taylor “Katie Hopkins”

13. The Late Late’s shiftcam, though


14. Speaking of shifting… when this gal brought a sign saying, “I’m only here to shift Marty” to Winning Streak…

Ever the gentleman, Marty declined her offer and said, “No! I’m promised to another! But thank you for caring.”
