15 times Irish people were absolute chancers in 2016

Brass necks.

1. When these two lads blagged their way into the Conor McGregor fight in New York

All they needed was to take a photo of the media pass and recreate their own – then breeze past multiple security checks like they actually deserve to be there.

2. When this girl sneaked an important sign on to Winning Streak

3. When someone in Kerry put this shed on DoneDeal for a casual €150

4. When this guy saw a name on Tinder and went with it

5. Whoever it was that came up with this ad

6. Perhaps the greatest chancer of all was this seal off the coast of Kinsale

“Let me just get in your selfie there, thanks”

7. The person who thought it was grand to drive a HEARSE with no tax

Would have been awkward if it happened during an actual funeral.

8. Whoever created this perfectly legitimate Father Ted Halloween costume

9. 2016 was the year someone in Belfast started bottling rain water for sale

What a gift!

10. When these Roscommon lads chanced their arm on finding another stag… and were actually successful

11. That time an Irish man in London convinced the people at Selfridges that this was an ancient Irish name

Pure chancer.

12. The guy who successfully posted this map to Hook Lighthouse in Wexford

15. And finally… at the same time of year, the person who started a petition to get Irish people off work during the good weather
