What a time to be alive. The early 00s in Ireland can be summed up in a few pictures. It was a simpler time where gel bands, studded belts and Juicy Couture tracksuits were the making of a cool Irish kid.
Get ready to weep with nostalgia at some of fashion choices, accessories and games that were the epitome of cool in early 00s Ireland.
1. An Abercrombie hoodie from America
Any relatives going to New York would be hounded.
2. Frosted tips
Literally every cool lad had frosted tips.
3. A studded belt
Preferably coloured, the brighter, the better.
4. Jelly bands
You wouldn't be caught dead without layers of jelly bands up your arm.
5. Juicy Couture tracksuit bottoms
The HACK of these. Everyone who was anyone would rock these with a white string top from Penneys.
6. Parachute pants
This was a low point, they make everyone look overweight.
7. A Motorola Razr
Flipping this open with one hand was the THING to do.
8. A Roxy schoolbag

9. Maybelline dream matte mousse
This made your skin crusty as hell.
10. A pair of Cantos
Extra brownie points if you personally highlighted them.
11. A Hollister shirt
12. Miss Sporty lipgloss
It would have to be re-applied every 20 minutes...
13. An iPod mini
14. DC skater shoes
These chunky shoes showed everyone else you skated or liked to look like you've had an allergic reaction. Either way, they were the epitome of cool.
15. Crimped hair
