LAST NIGHT, PEOPLE all over the country gathered to watch The Snapper on RTÉ One.

Sure, it might be 24 years old and yeah, we’ve seen it 700 times, but what’s the harm in watching it again?

After all, there’s nothing more quintessentially Irish.

Even Wayne The Cat Killer and Elmo agree.

Even if some aspects haven’t aged well…

*thinking face emoji*

Milestone in every Irish man’s life: realising you’ve turned into Colm Meaney.

A role model for Irish fathers.

That’s to say nothing of the quotes…

If reciting The Snapper was an Olympic sport, let’s just say we’d be top of the medal table.

Dream job.


Let’s take a moment for how the film was marketed to American audiences?

Er, slightly misleading, lads.

We might have our differences, but if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that The Snapper is a bona fide classic.


Here’s to watching The Snapper for the 800th time.
