Irish kids have absolutely no idea who President Michael D. Higgins is

School Around The Corner is coming back! And it’s as cute as ever.

Irish kids have absolutely no idea who President Michael D. Higgins is

"The President of Ireland looks like Holy God’s friend or maybe the Pope". Close enough.

"The Queen of England is the boss and sits around and drinks tea while ordering peoples heads to be chopped off". Sounds about right.

"Love keeps your heart beating and makes you kiss people." Yuck.

It’s School Around the Corner! The much-loved show is coming back with Ray Darcy at the helm and, with it, the unique perspectives of the nation’s kids.

We have three clips from the upcoming show for you to enjoy. In the videos, primary school children are asked to identify the Queen of England, President Michael D. Higgins and what love is.

Their answers range from the baffling to the surprisingly sweet and prove that the children of Ireland are comic geniuses.

Who’s this? - President Higgins

Who’s this? - The Queen

What is love?

School Around The Corner is back on RTE One at 6.30pm from Sunday, May 11.

We. Can’t. Wait.
