‘My hair’, ‘my stretch marks’ and ‘my kind eyes’ are all some of the positive attributes Irish celebrities have shared about themselves in a new social media campaign, #insideandout.
The campaign, launched by the current Rose of Tralee Elysha Brennan, encourages people to share two messages on social media; something they love about themselves physically and something they love about themselves on the inside.
"I realised that Irish people, we are a self-deprecating nation. We can't take praise, we can't take compliments and people, young men and women, adolescents and people in their twenties, have no self esteem, a negative body image and I think it's such a plague among young people and I think it just adds to the issue of mental health," Elysha told RTÉ TEN.
RTÉ’s Marty Morrissey got straight to the point praising his ‘kind eyes’ and ‘charm with the ladies’ - sure we wouldn't have doubted him.

While Dáithí Ó Sé is proud of his ‘nice feet, comedian Bernard O'Shea really REALLY likes his hair.
Ray D’Arcy has also got behind the campaign as he feels his show has "long association with mental health issues".
Use the hashtag #insideandout to get involved.
We can’t wait to hear what other Irish celebrities have to say.
