It seems like everyone in the country is watching The Snapper tonight
At the end of a perfect day of a patriotic week, the people of Ireland felt like they'd won the lottery when they realised that The Snapper was on telly on St Patrick's night.
The Snapper remains a firm favourite among Irish audiences with quotes from the movie spilling all over the internet from the film's watchers.
Perhaps the most quotable Irish movie of all time, there's just something in the Curley family that we all seem to relate to.
It also never, ever gets old.
The classic Roddy Doyle tale about young Sharon who gets knocked up by her friend’s Dad after a drunken fumble in a car park involves public shame, making up the daddy’s identity and her family’s reaction – and we get to witness true Dublin humour like nothing else.
A widely adored film every time it graces Irish telly, Twitter blew up with legions of tweets of appreciation, quotes and utter delight in its presence in people's living rooms.
And the crowd went wild...
"The Snapper". My mother would have described it as "very common". But it really is terrific.
