Dickie Rock trended on Twitter, but NOT because he's dead


VETERAN ENTERTAINER DICKIE Rock is trending in Ireland today.

At first glance, that fact alone caused some people to fear the worst…

But worry not – Dickie Rock is alive and well.

In fact, the reason he’s trending is because he performed on The People’s Debate with Vincent Browne last night.

Yes, Dickie Rock performed on a current affairs show last night in what might be the most Irish thing to ever happen.

Sure, people were a bit confused.

And others were concerned for poor ol’ Dickie.

While others bowed out immediately

But some saw it as the most perfectly Irish thing to ever happen

People descended into hysterics

Look at him serenading the crowd as Vincent watches on

Don’t think Peadar Tóibín enjoyed the performance, though
