All articles in this section are News satire. We do satire articles because it is great craic and Irish people love it!

Articles in this section are spoof articles which should not be taken as the truth, nor are they are intended to offend.

We write them for the craic with the intention of making people laugh. Please take such articles with ‘a pinch of salt’.

For those of you who don’t know, News satire is a type of parody presented in a format typical of mainstream journalism, and called a satire because of its content. News satire has been around almost as long as journalism itself, but it is particularly popular on the web.

Two slightly different types of news satire exist. One form uses satirical commentary and sketch comedy to comment on real-world news events, while the other presents wholly fictionalized news stories.
