10 of the best tweets about the Irish census
Irish Twitter was on fire last night.
When the people of Ireland opened their census forms last night and landed on the time capsule section, many of us were left scratching our heads.
Exactly what did we want to convey? Did we have a message for the people of 2122? A pearl of wisdom that might be cherished in the future?
Well, in true Irish fashion, many took to Twitter to share what they did with the section, and, reader, they did not disappoint.
Here are ten of our favourite tweets from Irish Twitter about the 2022 census.
1. First off, there was this tweet which captured the vibe of the nation.
This bloody time capsule thing on the Census form is like the government giving us homework on a Sunday night

2. In a similar scholastic vein, we had this tweet.
Lads, just crack on with the census and don’t be trying to copy other peoples’ - all you can do now is your best. If you’re under pressure by the time you reach the time capsule bit, stick in what you did for your summer holidays.
I’ve the candles lit.
