2. Miranda would be mad into Dublin GAA and insist on bringing the girls to an All-Ireland semi-final. (Where Carrie would inevitably score a centre forward.)

“Trey is such a Mammy’s boy — I don’t know what to do.”

5. Carrie would be like, “I’m sooo broke” and still somehow manage to go into Brown Thomas once a week.

6. Samantha would say things like, “Let’s just say he crossed O’Connell Bridge and went to the south side.”

11. Charlotte would try to get the ride during Dublin Tall Ships.


12. Carrie would go to The Galway Races once a year wearing an absurd fascinator.

15. Carrie would date a member of Dublin City Council for a while. (And she would later sabotage his efforts to become Lord Mayor via her column in The Herald.)

17. Carrie would accidentally get drunk before an appearance on Xposé and text all the girls to be like, “Shite, I’m drunk at Xposé.”

18. And she would snot herself while taking part in a charity fashion show…


And Rosanna Davison would step right over her on the runway.


19. And finally, people would constantly be telling Carrie to cop on to herself.

We’d never listen to this nonsense.
