“The response has been unbelievable and we have some truly hilarious Irish-made videos and sketches on our site, with more to come,” Hayden promised.

The group has also set up Facebook and Twitter accounts to spread the message.

The site features videos from characters like Shazwanda, Ding Dong, the Guilty Folk, Half a Giraffe, Mae Martin, Ghost Train Willy, Crooked Humour, Chris Kavanagh and Joanna Ryde.
