You can’t help but laugh at this video even though you may feel a little guilty about it after.

This video shows a kid at the airport excited at Christmas who runs off while not looking ahead and runs into some oncoming suitcases, falling flat on his face.

In January 2010 Ireland was gripped with cold, ice, and snow, and with the country in a recession, it was a tough time. 

However, the Irish people were given a much-needed lift during a live report on RTE News on how Dublin City Council were clearing the streets of winter sludge.

In this video, a man came into view behind the reporter and took a hilarious tumble that you couldn’t help but chuckle at.

With nearly a million views on YouTube, this funny Irish video has gone down in history with the star of the show being Joe O’Brien who ended up being the reluctant presenter/commentator of the Castletown Donkey Derby.

The commentary and performance by Joe O’Brien, coupled with the crazy events that occur during the race itself, make for entertaining and funny viewing.

In first place on our list of the funniest Irish videos on YouTube from the past ten years is the ‘What’s Snots?’ video.

‘What’s Snots?’ was a game on the Den, which was a children’s TV show.

The game involved inviting two children over the phone to guess the people, place, person, or object that Snotser was thinking of. 

Amy from Cavan and Kevin from Galway were the contestants hoping to win a bicycle, what happened next has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Kevin seemed not to understand the object of the game and what ensued was comedy gold.

That concludes our article on the funniest Irish videos on YouTube from the past ten years. How many of them have you seen?
