It’s fair to say that we have a knack for tweeting here in Laois so we decided to bring you our Top 25 Tweets of the Year.
There were too many to choose from so narrowing them down but we did our best.
Upon reflection, we forgot how many topics Twitter can cover and just how many opinions people have on pointless yet important topics.
We have quite a range of tweets here from a range of people which go from funny to wise to just a bit iconic.
So, without further adieu, here are our Top 25 Tweets from 2019!
25. Learning lessons from the students
Knocked over a big box of LEGO in school yday and I was all in a heap being like ahhhh noooo but then a kid said to me ‘múinteoir, you’re not going to be arrested, it’s only LEGO’ and I was like omg ya hahaha why tf am I all upset over LEGO

24. Always trust your instincts
When the guy you were *pretty* sure was a massive, mansplaining creep actually turns out to be a massive, mansplaining creep 😒😒😒 Trust your instincts, etc.

23. Every good love story starts with The Office
At EP I got talking to a handsome lad in the line at the charging station and we got talking about the office uk and we then added each other on snapchat. Everytime one of us watches it we snap each other our favourite scenes.
I’ve decided our kids will be called Gareth and Dawn

22. The back bone of our country. We will always #StandWithNurses
Nursing is one of if not the most selfless profession one could go in to. How sad that the kindest of us are also the most exploited. Pay student nurses for their work for gods sake and pay qualified nurses what they deserve. #StandWithNurses

21. It’s time to own it heading into the New Year. We do it and we’ll admit it.
Do you ever creep on someone you’re potentially gonna follow & then you see where they’re from in their bio & u do a quick U turn?? Examples include; Leitrim, Laois, Tipperary, or god forbid – Offaly.

14. If Dublin Bus can do it, so can you!
If the 747 Dublin Bus has enough courage to tell passengers that it takes only 30 mins to get to the city centre, then you have enough courage to shoot your shot with your crush.

9. Portlaoise isn’t that bad!!
was texting someone on tinder there and it was actually going quite well and then they asked where are you from, like where’s home? And I replied “Portlaoise 😃.” To which they replied “ew” and thus I haven’t heard from them since – great 👍🏻

People who didn’t grow up on a bog eating flys and butter sandwiches and drink warm water with a bad back don’t know hardship.

In the car & my 5 yr old boy, who is learning his weather words as gaeilge Is very proudly trying to teach our 2 yr old girl the Irish for ‘wet’.
I’ll leave you to figure out for yourself what that’s coming out sounding like.

1. The right mix of humour and seriousness is number one for this year!
Mother and sister can come in from darkness into light at 5:37am and are shouting and roaring at each other making a fry and wake up the house. But if I came in at 5:37am with the bais and woke up the house I’d probably be homeless in the morning. This is fascism
