Missing home? Well you’re not the only one. Thankfully, a couple of lads from Mallow in Cork, better known as the Irish comedy group Ham and Carrots, have come up with a tune that you may be able to relate to.

Speaking about the video, the Ham and Carrots lads said: “An epic farce/saga (farsaga) telling of an Irishman's struggle through mud, misery, monster munch, saucepans, sunburn and stereotypes on his emigrant journey.

“Will Smith, Queen, Liam O'Reilly and Percy French provided the originals - we are grateful. Calvin Klein provided the prescription jeans.”

The lads also produced the following ESB parody advert a few months ago, but you should check it out as it’s absolutely brilliant.
