IT’S BEEN A good year for all things Irish.

Here are our favourites from the past 12 months.

1. The Waterford Pig

In September a plucky pig went on a rampage during a street festival in Waterford City. Runaway porker, we salute you.

This video might be one of the greatest videos that has ever been committed to video. Three Irish lads took their Riverdancing talents around the world. Breathtaking.

It was Nancy’s exclamations of “ah Jesus, ah no Baz, ah Baz” and her bravery and distinct Irish mammyisms that made us fall in love with her.

12. This Buckfast spoof causing panic

It’s no laughing matter.

Sherlock star Andrew Scott appeared on the Late Late Show back in January and it was revealed that he was the kid from the eighties Flahavans ad. Remember, the one with the tracksuits.
