VIDEO: Irish kids talk about being bold

"Being bold" is a uniquely Irish way of misbehaving - otherwise know as 'acting the maggot', 'kaffling' or 'being a scut'.

In this video, some Irish kids discuss why they are bold and what happens when they are - adorably, one boy says the boldest thing the other has ever done is eat cheese that wasn't his.

Just terrible behaviour.

One of the boys, Luca, is bold when he gets hungry. We feel ya, Luca - so are we. It's a recognised medical condition (or it should be) and it's called being 'hangry'.

It can be cured with a slice of toast or a banana.
