Birthdays are undoubtedly special occasions, but have you ever wondered if your date of birth is a rarity or common as muck?

Now there's a simple way to find out, thanks to the Central Statistics Office website.

The CSO has created an online tool that tells you where your birthday ranks in popularity compared to the rest of the country.

Overall October 1 emerges as the most common birthday for Irish people.

The notorious February 29 is the most rare, for obvious reasons, with Christmas Day and St Stephen's Day being the second and third rarest. 

However, November is the most uncommon month to have a birthday. 

Nine of the top 10 dates of birth were towards the end of September, making this the most common time for birthdays. 

Is it a coincidence that September is nine months on from the festive New Years season? We think not. 


Kendall Jenner, reality TV star-turned-model, is celebrating her 22nd birthday today. 

In honour of the style icon's big day, we have rounded up a selection of her best looks which inspired us. 

Whether she's oozing glamour on the red carpet or keeping it casual in a tracksuit and bumbag, Kendall rarely misses a beat when it comes to keeping things sartorial in the style stakes.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have to be one of our favourite couples in Hollywood. 

The pair, who have been married for five years and have two children together, have a lighthearted approach to their relationship, and the most recent example of this had us in stitches. 

Ryan turned 41 on Monday, and Blake took to Instagram to pay homage to her hubby.

However, rather than posting a loved-up snap, Blake decided that the time was nigh to get revenge on her actor husband after he posted a photo of the pair with Blake cropped out for her birthday. 

'Happy Birthday to my amazing wife,' he captioned the pic at the time.

Blake's revenge is the perfect example of a long-running joke.

'Happy Birthday, baby,' Blake captioned the post, alongside a pic of Ryan Gosling beside a cropped out Ryan Reynolds. 

Fans were delighted with the couple's jest, and many commented praising their humour. 

Yet another example of why Blake and Ryan are complete couple goals. 


September 12 2012 completely changed the landscape of online dating, when a pair of entrepreneurs launched an app which would connect millions upon millions of potential couples. 

Facilitating hook-ups, true love, long-term relationships and the occasional unsolicited WhatsApp dick pic, the app revolutionised the prior preconceptions people had about dating online. 

Tinder brought online dating right to our phones, making it more accessible and user-friendly for the millennial generation. 

Here are five love lessons we learned from the now iconic dating app. 

1. It's okay to be picky

Swiping left more often than you swipe right is to be expected, not everyone is going to be for you. 

Having certain expectations for the kind of person you want to be with is just fine, especially on a casual dating app.

2.  Some light detective work can save you from the most awkward of circumstances

True story: Once I almost went on a date with my best friend's sister's boyfriend, who was cheating on her with random girls from Tinder. 

After I described him to my bestie, she started listing details about him I hadn't told her as she slowly began to recognise my description. 

One quick Facebook search would have saved me a lot of hassle. 

3. Your intentions must always be clear

We all know people are on Tinder for a variety of different reasons. 

Some are actually looking to date in the pursuit of a long-term relationship, while others just want a casual night between the sheets. 

When getting to know someone new, it's only fair to make sure you both have matched up your intentions to avoid anyone getting your feelings hurt over a miscommunication.

4. It's good to step back and take a break from dating

Oftentimes the dating game can feel like one non-stop conveyor belt of swiping right, chatting for a bit, moving to Whatsapp and then meeting IRL…and then nothing. 

Deleting Tinder for a month or so to decompress and reassess, and then redownloading it full of fresh hope (or a scratchable itch) is a Tinder rite of passage.

5. There actually are plenty of guys out there…

…it's just finding the right one that's the trick. 

If you have ever felt like there are simply no attractive, available men left in your city, Tinder will soon prove you wrong after a bit of diligent swiping. 

Tinder – making us lose and simultaneously regain all hope for our love lives since 2012.


For those of you who don't know, former President of the United States, Barack Obama, is celebrating his 56th birthday today.

And if you could reply on anyone to offer up a perfect throwback, it's former First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Taking to Twitter to pay tribute to the man she shares her life with, Michelle uploaded two throwback shots of the Obama family celebrating the former president's 43rd birthday.

"Another year older, but the same phenomenal guy I married nearly 25 years ago," Michelle wrote. "Happy birthday, @BarackObama — we love you so much!"

The tweet, which was uploaded less than an hour ago, has amassed more than 79,000 likes so far, with members of the public keen to share in the celebrations.

"Literally all of the relationship goals," wrote one while another added: "Happy Birthday! We miss you both. Come back. We get it. The prank is over. This story is getting old!"

We're with them on that one.



We always love Brain O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman's banter on social media, but Brian's birthday post to his wife is a particularly funny one.

Amy celebrated her 38th birthday yesterday and her hubby took to Instagram to wish her a great day.

Taking the mick out of her fashion icon status, Brain shared a photo of Amy in a black raincoat and blue plastic poncho.


Happy birthday to this style icon!

One fan even commented on the photo, noting that "there's a Virgin Mary look about her!"

Ah, we love this couple.



With the world’s top designers fighting to dress her for even the most minute of occasions, Kendall Jenner’s 21st birthday party attire was bound to grab a few headlines.

But when the Victoria’s Secret model stepped out in a replica of the dress worn by Paris Hilton to mark her big day back in 2002, she caught everyone’s attention.

While the KUWTK star was quick to acknowledge the similarities between the outfits with her “vintage Paris Hilton vibes” Instagram post, until now no one knew how the heiress felt about Kendall’s update.

Thankfully, the Simple Life star has since proved herself a true believer of the phrase “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, as she recently told Grazia that she was delighted Kendall chose to wear the eye-catching number.

“I was talking to her mum and then all of a sudden this gorgeous, glittering birthday girl walked in and as soon as I saw the dress I was like, ‘Oh my god that is the exact same dress that I wore to my 21st birthday, that Julien Macdonald,’ recounted Paris.

“[Kendall] was like ‘I know it’s not Julien Macdonald but I was obsessed with your dress so I sent the photos to the designer and had him basically copy your dress’ and I was like, ‘It looks so good on you!’”

“And she was like, ‘Thank you I just thought it was the perfect birthday dress.’  So yeah, I was really flattered and I thought she looked stunning and I thought ‘It is the perfect birthday dress’ especially when you’re turning 21!”

“It was really nice to see her wearing that and she looked gorgeous.  We had a fun talk about it.  It was cute I saw on her Instagram she wrote ‘Paris Hilton vibes’ with a picture of the dress and I thought that was really sweet.”


Happy Birthday @KrisJenner!  Sending you lots of love on your special day beautiful #BirthdayGirl!

Following her high profile split with cheating fiancé Nick Young, Iggy Azalea has adopted an enthusiastic approach to self-love.

Having recently declared her vagina “the best in the world”, late last week the Australian rapper took to Instagram to thank her plastic surgeon for her “fabulous nose and breasts” while wishing him well on his 43rd birthday.

Alongside a casual snap of Iggy and Beverly Hills’ Dr Ashkan Ghavami, the 26-year-old star wrote: “Happy birthday @DrGhavami It might seem obvious I’d hold the man I owe my fabulous nose and breasts to in high regard.”

“But vanity aside; Ash you’re hilarious as hell, talented, eclectic, a progressive thinker and someone who supports women in their choice to do what they want with their OWN bodies.”

The Fancy singer then pointed out how “tonnes of men” lack the understanding she credits Dr Ghavami with, before stating that she is “proud” to call him her friend.

Iggy has been praised on social media for speaking openly about the work she’s had done at a time when so many celebrities avail of cosmetic assistance while opting to deny that fact.

“So honest, I love it,” wrote one follower.  “Say it how it is girl #truthpatrol,” said another.

Yesterday was Storm Keating's 35th birthday and the lovely lady spent her day celebrating in Papua New Guinea.

Of course, her hubby Ronan was by her side throughout the whole day as the couple enjoyed some down time from their busy lives.

This sounds like a dream already, but wait until you read what Ronan had to say about his wife.

Taking to Instagram, Ronan shared a cute picture of Storm blowing out the candle on her birthday cake.

He captioned the post: “Birthday celebrations have begun for the most incredible lady I have ever known. Let me take a moment to gush about this one.

“She is such a warm caring decent loving person. Nothing phases her nothing gets her down she sees the good in everyone especially me. 

"The world is a better place with her in it and my life is better for knowing and loving her. Happy birthday my Stormy. Love you."

AW! You guys…


Vogue Williams turned 31 over the weekend, and boy, did she have fun.

The model started off her weekend keeping things on the DL, but that soon turned into a gas fancy-dress party.

It was only her close friends that shared the day with her, but if the Instagram snaps are anything to go by, they had a wild time.

She spent the day(and night) in London, and the next day took to the social media app to thank her buddies:

"I have the best friends who threw me the best birthday party! Thank you @iamjamesoneill @osullivanbryan and for letting @rickygibb and I dress up in all of your fabulousness."

The DJ's friend, James O'Neill, also took to IG to post a few snaps from the night.

Earlier this month Beyoncé gave us major birthday feels by celebrating her 35th in full 70s glamour with a Soul Train themed bash.

And now, fashion designer Nicole Richie has marked her own 35th with a star studded affair which was again themed to the same era.

On Friday night, the former Simple Life star headed to The Standard hotel in Hollywood with her husband Joel Madden, sister-in-law Cameron Diaz and famous friends Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and Ellen Pompeo where she spent the night skating around a roller rink dressed head-to-toe in 70s get-up.


Kickin off 35 like…

According to Us, the mother of two stunned in a full length, gold sequined, peep-hole dress with a full head of curls as she partied to songs like Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) and Diana Ross’ I’m Coming Out.

Celebrity attendees used social media throughout the night to give fans a sneak peek of the fun being had inside the exclusive event.

Yesterday marked Sarah Michelle Gellar's daughter's seventh birthday.

And to celebrate the special day, Sarah took to Instagram to share a really sweet message about her.

Sharing a picture of her holding Charlotte Grace as a baby, the actress wrote: "Sometimes when I need a miracle, I look into my daughters eyes, and realise I've already created one. #happybirthdayCharlotte #thisis7."

Sarah and her hubby Freddie Prinze Jr welcomed Charlotte in 2009 and three years later their son Rocky was born.
