Don’t ever dare to question an Irish mammy’s place in the family
Everyone knows that mammy is at heart of every Irish family, and woe betide anyone whoever calls that into question… even in the most innocent way imaginable.
Dave McGinn was delighted when his mother got a smartphone for her birthday as it meant it would be easier to keep in touch with her. He immediately added her to the family’s whatsapp group and sent her a message to that effect.
He didn’t expect the comeback, with mammy making her position in the family perfectly clear.
