ICYMI - The Best of Irish Twitter This Week

To the uninitiated, Twitter can be a bit of mine field. It's where memes and news stories are often born and, in many ways, it's a language in and of itself. And then, of course, you've got the specific subculture that is Irish Twitter which is a whole other ball game.

We here at LADBible understand that it can be overwhelming trying to stay on top of a platform that feels like if you blink, you'll miss something crucial. That's why we've put together this nifty guide to the best of what's occurred on Irish Twitter this week - the funniest memes, the hottest takes and the moments that just made us say WT actual F.

So grab a cuppa, sit back and catch up on all the best tweets you might have missed this week, safe in the knowledge you can regurgitate them all to your friends as though they're your original thoughts in the coming week.

LOL - This week's funniest tweets

Starting things off on a suitably low brow note - here's Bella Hadid wearing a dress that makes it looks like she's doing a shite. The only way for this column is up.

Last week's shock announcement that vaccines would be available to everyone over the age of 18 through pharmacies around the country the next day sent the nation into a spin. In the midst of the all the chaos, we couldn't help but spare a thought for the poor rattled pharmacists who can probably still hear the sound of their work phone bleeping every 30 seconds when they close their eyes.

After weeks of intense Euros chatter, the Eurovision (another competition we had no skin the game for) seems like a distant memory. Well prepare for it all to come flooding back to you in the worst possible way thanks to this unsettling discovery by @MaceofMolagBal.

As Sunday's Euros final approaches, it's truly terrifying how close football seems to be to coming home. With the Danes out of the running and a win for England seeming all too plausible, we, the Irish, are left with no choice but to become Italian for the next 72 hours. Ciao!

As we embrace this new culture and heritage, we're reminded that we and the Italians have always had a certain synergy, particularly when it comes to dining.

Forget home, it's coming to Rome says I... an Italian man. Prego.

TBH - The tweets that made us go 'Hmm...'

The run up to The Twelfth is always a hugely contentious time in Northern Ireland and this year is no different. We wouldn't be so facetious as to weigh in on such a highly complex and sensitive issue in a column that began with a tweet about Bella Hadid wearing a dress that looks like she's pooing. It is, however, sad to read the replies to this tweet by Sinn Féin politician Caoimhe Archibald where citizens of the North are expressing a desire to move their families away from their home for fear there will never truly be an end to the violence and sectarianism that has plagued the country for decades.

Readers, we're going to break the fourth wall slightly and admit that the person who wrote this tweet also wrote this column. As the tweet reads however, the fight to keep this heinous hate speech against Muslims from Fade St alumni Vogue Williams in the public consciousness is something of a vocation for us. Stay woke, please.

Limerick singer and rapper Denise Chaila caused something of a stir when she performed at the Government's test gig at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin last weekend wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with slogans against 'romanticising genocide'. Naturally not everyone was a fan of Chaila's look but we couldn't get enough of it.

WTF - An ode to the tweet we just didn't see coming

Ladies... this just is not it. Can someone please let love into journalist Caitlin Moran's life so that she might know happiness beyond the sight of English supporters honking their horn?
