They’re here! Emojis that know EXACTLY what it means to be Irish


We’re not sure if this is something to be proud of, but the vast majority of us can communicate in emojis alone.

Night out with the girls? Throw a few dancing ladies in red dresses into a message and you’re good to go. 

Hungover and done with life? Sick emoji followed by sleeping one, and you’ve said all you need to.

And while we wouldn’t be without them, we’ve become a little jaded by the current selection which is why we are PUMPED that a UK start-up called Fanmoji have launched an app aimed specifically at us Irish.

Boasting more than 150 Irishmojis created by Irish illustrator Diarmuid Ó Catháin, this app lets you tell stories unique to our glorious little country, and with the Euros coming up it couldn't have launched at a better time!

If hurleys and hearts in Irish colours to an Garda Síochána and St Patrick weren’t fantastic enough, Irishmoji does our talking for us by actually including ‘Scarlet’ and ‘Deadly Buzz’ stickers in the range.

Commenting on the launch, Fanmoji founder Tim Webber said: “We ran a poll last month letting the people of Ireland vote on the final few things that should be in the first release of the app, and the response was amazing.”

“Ireland has such a deep cultural history in its buildings, landmarks and people, and along with the number of great symbols and phrases that lend themselves to emoji stickers and illustrations we thought it’d be a brilliant way to bring out the character of the country,” he added.

Irishmoji is available on iPhone and Android, and you’ll get more than 100 Irishmojis when you download the app. Oh, and even better than that? As soon as you share the app, you’ll get another 20 Irishmojis!

 Ladies, it’s go-time.
