With every event that takes place in Ireland, there's always a few messers that like to approach them in a more colourful way.
This was the case with the Census, which had to be filled in last night, and people took to social media to look at it in humourous fashion.
There were people going back to their school days:
Census: "Can you speak Irish?"
My first and only thought: "An bhfuil cad agam dul dtí an leithreas?"

In the end, chickened out and dropped down to Ordinary Level Census. Piece of piss. #Census2016

Meanwhile, there was subtle reminders for those who were out on the town last night:
If you pull tonight remember to ask them at some point to fill out the census #Census2016

Even Niall from Beat Breakfast got in on the action:

There's the golden question:
How many people do you reckon put down 'full time mad bastard' as their occupation #Census2016

The Census allowed people to evaluate their life:

And of course, there was top quality parenting banter:
Just to freak out my kids I filled out a section on #Census2016 for "The Monster Under The Bed"..
I told them we HAD to include everyone 😳

On a more serious note, enumerators will begin collecting census forms from every household in the country today.
Anyone who refuses to take part in the census faces prosecution and a fine of up to 44 thousand euro.
The CSO is urging anyone with questions to contact them.
