What Irish People Searched For on Google in 2014 Might Surprise You...
Google has released a list of its most-searched for items in 2014 and there are a few that certainly won’t come as a surprise to many.
The top things that Irish people searched for over the last 12 months included the World Cup, Garth Brooks, the celebrity photo hack and Michael Schumacher.
In terms of people, Kim Kardashian was the top trending person in Ireland, followed by Kate Middleton, Garth Brooks and Peaches Geldof.
The list also revealed that Irish people love learning how to do stuff, with people asking how to meditate, knit and draw and quite interestingly, how to shift. Nice.
Somewhat surprisingly, Peppa Pig topped the list of trending TV shows, with other favourites including House of Cards and Game of Thrones. Meanwhile, Frozen topped the list for movies, with Divergent and American Hustle coming in after.
Garth Brooks continued to dominate the Irish news year, coming in as the top trending music act, followed by One Direction, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. The top most-searched for recipes of the year was a recipe for pancakes, while cupcakes, chicken curry and chocolate cake all came in in the top four.
