WATCH: Offaly woman's 'Irish mammy' skits are viral sensation


An Offaly woman's Irish mammy-inspired skit videos have become a viral hit on social media.

Ballycumber's Stacey Cordial has hit home with viewers with her hilarious, often foul-mouthed, impressions of the humble Irish mammy. 

From paying for exams to paying the price for coming in late, Stacey's character has dealt with the big issues affecting Irish mammies and their children. 

Stacey, using the 'Stacey's Skits' Facebook page, has amassed 12,000 followers and over two million views on her videos since she began posting them less than a year ago in March 2018.

"I started making videos depicting the Irish mammy and how they react under certain circumstances. I always wanted to make videos, as a child I wanted to make everyone around me laugh," Stacey said.

"I love to think that if someone is having a hard day or things aren’t going their way, that they can click into one of my videos and forget it all for a couple of minutes."

"To receive messages on a daily basis how I really do affect people and sometimes make their day, makes all the hard work I put into my skits worthwhile."

"The page is constantly growing and knowing I am supported by people I don’t know personally is incredible. It sometimes feels surreal. I encourage everyone in life, that no matter how hard things might seem to accomplish, nothing is impossible. I want to thank everybody for their continued support on Stacey’s Skits and I cannot wait to see what the future holds."

You can watch an example of Stacey's videos, the infamous 'parent-teacher meeting' at the top of this article. You can also see more over at the Stacey's Skits Facebook page or on Stacey's new YouTube channel
