Meet Ireland’s favourite YouTube family - literally

If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years you might not know who ‘The SacconeJolys’ are, but you're in luck as we are about to fill you in.

Jonathon and Anna SacconeJoly began daily vlogging four years ago and since then they got engaged, married, gained six white maltese dogs, had two children (Emilia and Eduardo) and moved from Cork to London … all online for the world to see.

The Vloggers have now over 128 million views on their YouTube channel and and nearly seven hundred thousand subscriberswho they deem their ‘friendliest friends’. Some have even been tuning in since day one (*cough* Bagel Slicin’ *cough*).

Earlier this year they made the move from Cork to London and have gained even more popularity adopting Zoella as their new ‘babysitter’.

Luckily for us they are returning to Ireland on a little holiday to meet all of their Irish ‘friends’ in a SacconeJoly meet-up.

Jonathon set up a Facebook event on Tuesday inviting a mere 174 people and as it currently stands there are over 1,800 people making the trip for their chance to meet the family.

The meet-up is scheduled to be held this month, but the date and venue have not been confirmed as of yet.

Do you watch the SacconeJolys? It’s ok, we're all friends here.

Will you be making the trip? Let us know!
