7 Irish people you should be following on Snapchat

Snapchat is where it’s at, don’t you know?

ABANDONED YOUR Snapchat account as of late? Here’s a reminder of why you downloaded it.

Irish people are racking up thousands of followers on Snapchat – why? Because they’re absolute gas tickets. Here are seven people you need to follow.

Holly Carpenter (@hollcarpenter)

Just at #TV3Ireland going on the 7 O'clock show soon for the chats ❤️ having a #GoodHairDay with my @goldfeverhair by @ceiralambert hollycarpenter hollycarpenter

Model Holly Carpenter is probably the original queen of Irish Snapchat – she even appeared on The Late Late Show earlier this year to discuss her wildly popular blog post on ‘decoding’ people’s snaps.

Her Snapchats are an insight into the life of a model (who doesn’t take herself too seriously, thank God) with a healthy dose of emojis.

Deric Hartigan (@greektitz)

The TV3 weatherman caught the eye of William Shatner (yes, that William Shatner) earlier this year, and his star is continuing to rise thanks to his hilarious Snapchat.

Expect gym snaps, weather chat, and glimpses of his now-infamous wardrobe.

Rosemary MacCabe (@rosemarymaccabe)

Blow-dry and makeup by Vanessa and Eilis at Brown Sugar; extensions by Valerie at Cowboys & Angels using Great Lengths; unbelievably good looks by my parents rosemarymaccabe rosemarymaccabe

As deputy editor of Stellar magazine, Rosemary has the inside scoop on all things beauty and fashion.

Her snaps range from sneak peeks at beauty bits (including that new Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette) to funny observations about style, the media, and Irish life.

James Kavanagh (@jamesksnaps)

#VintageSelfie jamesalankavanagh jamesalankavanagh

James Kavanagh works in a PR agency, runs a club night, and edits an interiors website – and Snapchats the whole thing every day.

His snaps are pure comedy, with James gently mocking the blogging community and regularly scaring his poor boyfriend, William.

Joanne Larby (@themakeupfairy)

Galway you've been amazing makeupfairypro makeupfairypro

Looking for some workout inspiration? Fitness and makeup blogger (and soon to be author) Joanne Larby has it for you by the bucketload.

Karen Constantine (@lovelygirlybits)

Packed the makeup on, this means one thing, filming time! lovelygirliebits lovelygirliebits

Karen is one of Ireland’s most trusted beauty bloggers, and already had quite the following on YouTube before she branched out to Snapchat.

Follow her for beauty tips and LOLS galore – she isn’t afraid to be seen with her face mask on, which we have nothing but respect for.

Holly Shortall (@hollywooddublin)

Fashion illustrator Holly Shortall is absolutely gas on Twitter (as Cher recently found out) but she’s made Snapchat her art form.

Holly’s snaps chart her hunt for coffee, give glimpses of illustrations she’s working on, and lately, feature an adorable rabbit (she’s bunny-sitting right now, as you do).
