Brilliant Beyonce cover about confusion over traditional Irish names
A group of Facebook comedians have created a video demonstrating the problems that can arise in a coffee shop when the customer has a traditional Irish name.
There has been much talk in the past about the difficulty people can have in understanding the spelling of Irish names.
In this video, from the comedy sketch group Just These Please, three Irish people walk into a coffee shop to order some drinks.
As part of the ordering process, the barista asks them for their name so they can be called when their drinks are ready.
The three Irish customers then break into a funky singing and dancing performance, with their own take on the Beyonce hit Bootylicious.
It is cleverly written and great fun. Many people with traditional Irish names will be able to relate to the confusion and frustration that can occur.
Take a look for yourself.
