This Sunday is Father's Day, and while it might seem like a bit of a Hallmark holiday, at the end of the day it's a great reminder to thank your dad for everything he's done for you.

From changing nappies and teaching us to walk, ferrying us to and from teen discos and getting choked up on our Debs night, Irish dads have a tough life.

A new survey carried out by PhotoBox, the print company with a twist, asked 333 Irish adults about the relationship they share with their dad and the things they appreciate most. Here are just a few of the reasons we love our old man…

1. He gives the best, most straight-up honest advice you will ever receive
19% of people love their dad for his no-bullsh*t take on life.


2. He has the ability to fix ANYTHING that's broken. And we mean anything.
Chairs, iPhones, sunglasses… you name it. Over a third of people say they rely on their dad to fix things around the house.


3. He has no qualms about shamelessly embarrassing himself just to wind you up
"DAAAAD! STOPPPPP!" 34% of those surveyed cringed at the thought of their dad making a fool of them in front of their pals. 


4. Enthusiastic dancing is his forte
Especially if power ballads are involved. In fact, 18% of people say they were left morto by their dads dancing in public.


5. If you ask nicely enough, he'll always relent and give you a lift
Thanks, live-in chauffeur… we mean, Dad.


6. Ditto a cheeky tenner when you're absolutely stoney broke
Yessss, you can finally buy something other than beans for dinner. 


7. He's your number one fan… always
"You were the STAR of the play, love, they couldn't keep their eyes off you!" – Your dad, in reference to your appearance as a donkey at the Nativity play in 1995


8. He'll go to the moon and back for you
71% say their Dad is the person in their life that goes above and beyond to help them.

Make sure you let your dad know how much he means to you this Father's Day.
