Shurrup Yew Ye Tick is the triumphant Irish meme of 2015

Will yis shurrup?


HAS THERE EVER been aΒ meme that has so beautifully summed up what it is to be Irish.

Shurrup Yew Ye Tick (which also trades under variations like Shurrup U Ye Tick, Shurrup U Yeh Tick etc) is the perfect combination of language and imagery.

The meme emerged at the start of theΒ year, but the phrase has long been an exclamation of either good natured ribbing or shady derision, depending on its delivery.

The meme (and popularity of Facebook groups like Hope Ur Ok Hun) have brought it back into fashion.

Long live Shurrup Yew Ye Tick.
