Reality Check: Irish People Take 40 Times More Selfies than Americans

We all need to take a good long look at ourselves, and then not a photo.

In a study carried out by phone manufacturer Huawai in the lead up their Snapys award show, it has been revealed that Irish people take eight times more selfies per capita than people in the UK, and 40 times more than those in the U.S.

The study also found that Galway is the capital of selfie-takers, with its residents taking six times more photos of themselves than that of their Dublin counterparts, although Cork and Limerick weren't far behind.

The Cliffs of Moher is the most photographed landmark, beating off competition from Croke Park by over 10,000 images.


Now, can we all agree to stop with the selfies for a minute. Live your lives people, or a the very least take photos of what your looking at as opposed to your reaction of looking at things.
