Top 50 Irish people you need to follow on Snapchat

And now some Irish people are making a full career out of Snapchatting and they’re being stopped on the streets for selfies – it's become the new fast-track to fame.

So we've listed the top 50 people to follow (not in any particular order by the way)... get Snapping folks!

1. James Patrice

( jamespatrice)

The one, the only James Patrice!

We feel like we shouldn't even have to explain who James is or what he does. From scaring the absolute crap out of his poor mother Fron on a Daily basis to ROTTING over meals and his mates, he's the best person if you want a good laugh.

James is the Fashion Editor at MFI Magazine so he’s at the best style events and you’re guaranteed to catch him miming hilariously to favourite tunes on a weekly basis.

2. Marissa Carter

( cartermarissa)

Cocoa Brown Tan owner Marissa Carter is definitely one of the most popular ladies on Snapchat in Ireland.

The business guru Snaps everything from how to Tantour, showing off her latest products and going through her beauty regime.

The busy mum-of-two also takes followers through her cooking regime (we love the Disney pancakes especially).

She often opens her Snaps up for Q&A’s too – so get following!

3. James Kavanagh

Get ready to present yoself…

If you don’t know who James Kavanagh is then you don’t deserve to be on Snapchat. Every day James lights up my life with his hilarious seflies, showing off his stunning apartment (and his candelabras).

Can we also just take a moment to ogle over the amazing Veronica Sachs – Kavanagh’s female alter ego.

But one of the main reasons we tune is to watch James scare the crap out of his lovely boyfriend William ( willspjmurray)…I’m surprised he hasn’t collapsed with pure fear at this stage.

4. Suzanne Jackson


Ireland’s top blogger and now one of the leading Snapchatters, the Dublin beauty queen is definitely a must follow.
