This sketch superbly sums up every Irish film ever

“Marry me, Patrick.” “But…you’re a Protestant.”

MISERY. VIOLENCE. THE Catholic Church. Combine these, and you have the perfect recipe for An Irish Film.

This sketch by Foil Arms and Hog gathers up every typically Irish film trope and turns them into one Irish megafilm. Themes include:

  • Religious conflict
  • Descent into alcoholism
  • Picturesque shots for the Irish Tourism Board
  • Scenes of violence set to a haunting Irish hymn

And many, many more.
