'When your mam tries to mark you down as Roman Catholic when you're asleep...'
April 24th marked Census Day in Ireland, meaning millions of us sat down last night to spill on our most personal details – from where we were born to what time we leave the house for work every day.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter was full of Irish folks taking the p*ss as they got to grips with the green-and-white form.
There was this lad, who said what we were all thinking about the ‘Can you speak Irish?’ question
Census: “Can you speak Irish?”
My first and only thought: “An bhfuil cad agam dul dtí an leithreas?”
*Confidently marks ‘yes’*#Census2016

This Irish dad who couldn’t resist making a few changes
And this dad who put the frighteners on everyone
Just to freak out my kids I filled out a section on #Census2016 for “The Monster Under The Bed”..
I told them we HAD to include everyone

There was this woman, who knew exactly how to handle Q12
Filling out the census as Catholic in the streets, no religion in the sheets. #Census2016

And this lad, who had other ideas

There was this guy, who got cold feet
In the end, chickened out and dropped down to Ordinary Level Census. Piece of piss. #Census2016

There was this solid piece of advice for anyone in Coppers of a Sunday
If you pull tonight remember to ask them at some point to fill out the census #Census2016

And this woman, who came up with what is frankly a GENIUS idea
Is there a #Census2016 drinking game I should know about?
