An Irish Take on funerals and mass – the awkward parts

An Irish Take on funerals

The team behind YouTube channel An Irish Take have created a couple of comical videos giving the Irish perspective of both funerals and mass.

An Irish Funeral follows three mourners and points out the changes in their mood and behaviour as the day progresses.

An Irish Take on funerals

It begins with them solemn and respectful, as they offer their condolences to the deceased’s family.

However, as the day goes on, and beers are consumed, the mood changes. The quality of the sandwiches is questioned, inappropriate comments are made, and drinks are raised to toast the dead.

You will have to watch the video to see what the Irish Take think is typical behaviour, but at least one of the scenes is bound to strike a chord and make you laugh.

The other video offers the Irish Take on going to mass, or more specifically, the awkward parts of going to mass.

The first scene shows two members of the congregation awkwardly shaking hands as a sign of peace.

The accepting of the Eucharist, kneeling in the aisle, and the collection plate are also visited in this comical take on attending church.

Irish Take are a relatively new YouTube channel and little is known about the characters in the videos.

Their most successful video so far, is If Weather Presenters were a little more honest, which has so far been viewed more than 80,000 times.
