Wexford girls wrote 'please' 6,000 times in this letter to The Den in the 80s

Please play the video to Hungry Eyes.

ZIG AND ZAG appeared on the Ray D’Arcy show last night, and it was suddenly the nineties.


Of course they were there to discuss their new cartoon series, but it’s really all about the Den.

The show’s Twitter account shared these amazing letters the show received in 1988, and they absolutely reek young 80′s Ireland
