#SongsFromTheEmeraldIsles hashstag is taking over Twitter

The latest Twitter hashtag has seen two of Ireland’s most famous characteristics merge to create some great fun.

Were you ‘Bodhrán to Be Wild’? Have you been ‘Shamrocking all over the world’? Or do you prefer to ‘Go you’re Galway’?

These are just a few of the great Tweets posted by fans of Irish music and craic using the hashtag #SongsFromTheEmeraldIsles.

Ireland is famous for its traditional folk music, and loving the craic is possibly what our people are most known for around the world.

This hashtag beautifully joins the two, much to the amusement of all who scroll through them.

No artists are safe. Meatloaf, Queen, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Johnny Cash, Aqua, Madness, Beyonce… there is pretty much no limit to the songs that could be ‘turned Irish’ with just a little imagination.

Here is just a selection of some of the best on Twitter at the moment. Have you got some of your own to add?
