YOU’VE PROBABLY NOTICED that Ireland is going through a spell of rugby mania at the moment.

Maybe it’s because of a little something called the Rugby World Cup being on? It’s impossible to tell.

Over the past day or so, one joke has been doing the rounds on social media and is threatening to totally take over Irish Facebook and Twitter.
