Last night, RTÉ premiered The Doireann Project on its online player
A 9-minute sketch show starring Radio presenter and Snapchat star, Doireann Garrihy.
The 25-year-old, who is known for her spot-on impressions of some well-known Irish faces, shared sneak peeks of the pilot on her social media leading up to the show, including one of her dressed as a Gardaí in front of a green screen.
And from Inertia - her impression of Saoirse Ronan - to the ‘Mammy at the school gates’, it’s safe to say it didn’t disappoint.
@DoireannGarrihy doing Saoirse Ronan is the best thing ever. #TheDoireannProject— Shauna O Brien (@ShaunaOBrienn) January 17, 2018
#TheDoireannProject is the best thing I’ve ever seen, cannot cope with it 😭😭😭— Amy (@AmyNiRhian) January 16, 2018
@rte @RTEplayer #TheDoireannProject can't be just a once off episode! Would love to see where @DoireannGarrihy takes this with a full series. Well done Ms. Garrihy!— Katie Brosnan (@katiembrosnan) January 17, 2018
Bloody brilliant 😂😂 in tears of laughter watching #TheDoireannProject— Kiera McKenna (@KieraMckenna2) January 16, 2018
So @DoireannGarrihy’s show is absolutely GAS. I mean, I adore her so I was prepared to like it anyway but it superseded expectations. Excellent writing @fionalooney and BRAVO DZOIREANN!!!! #TheDoireannProject— Vicki Notaro Carlyle (@vickinotaro) January 16, 2018
She also hilarious took on Dr. Eva and the hosts of the Today Show, Dáithí and Maura.
Which has been widely acclaimed as one of the best Dáithí impressions yet.
"I'm from the country and I fecking love it. I know what 'hit the diff' means and I call everyone lads"
