Ah, primary school. Remember those innocent times? Capri Suns and chicken fillet rolls and school desks that were decades past their sell-by date. At a time of lockdown, when everything is upside down, it's nice to have those memories of school to put a bit of light on a wintry day.
Singer Soule put out a very simple call last night on Twitter, asking for people to prove they went to school in Ireland.
The tweet went viral and the thread that it provoked is like an injection of wholesome nostalgia right into your veins.
Here's some of our favourite replies. We recommend reading the whole thread today.
