However it wasn't Coleen Rooney or Rebekah Vardy that had the most mentions by Irish users, that went to Lewis Capaldi.

The popularity of Lil Nas X's hit track Old Town Road saw him just behind Capaldi, with Liam Gallagher and Ariana Grande also making the list.

Irish sport also featured among the topics of conversation, especially around Katie Taylor.

#ClimateStrike, the local elections (#LE19), Storm Lorenzo and the Budget made up the top five.
