We give you… eight extremely Irish Halloween costume ideas

Some last minute inspiration!

Ciara Knight

Finally, Halloween is upon us!

Like most people, I will be throwing a vaguely acceptable outfit together on the night itself, along with lathering myself in face paint and announcing my effort as some sort of zombie.

Alternatively, if you have no interest in attending any sort of Halloween soirée, tell your friends that you are dressing up as missing flight MH370, and then simply don’t turn up.

Here’s 8 extremely Irish costume ideas I’ve put together. Feel free to use them, you lazy scrub.

1. Tullamorbeg


WooooooooOOOOOOOOOOooooooo, very spooky.

2. Deadward

The illustration on the theme of death and people.

Even in death, they remain terrifyingly energetic.

3. Donal Skiing


Doesn’t seem very scary? Well, what if I told you that he’s skiing away from a soufflé that didn’t rise!!!!!

4. Marty Morri-sea of Tranquility


If that is what’s on the moon, get me a flight there immediately.

5. Maura Derran-a-race

Young happy man celebrating his success after crossing the finish line and winning the race.

Girl has been hitting the gym and it shows.

6. Anne Doyley

Celebration background.

Place your boiling hot liquid vessel upon her face. She will protect any surface.

7. Barmbrack Obama

Alternatively a snail, with Michelle on his back so he can say “That’s m’shell”.

8. Jamie DorNan

Old woman with a cane on a white background

Still would, tbh.
