A PAIR of young Tyrone boys have captured the imagination and won millions of fans across the world with a series of brilliant videos offering a glimpse of their life together on the family farm.
Pearse and Darragh O’Neill may only be aged five and four respectively, but the two brothers are already social media superstars.
It all started when their mum, Caroline, who is a social media consultant and businesswoman, began filming the pair going about their day on their grandfather’s farm in Clonoe, Co Tyrone.
The resulting clips were subsequently posted to Caroline’s Instagram page @diggmama, where they soon began to rack up thousands of views.
Hilariously candid, the clips see Pearse and Darragh discussing everything from the best way to mow a field to the crucial differences between a bull and a cow.
There’s even a video in which the young brothers outline the benefits of taking Hob Nob biscuits with them when riding the tractor.
Adorable and thoroughly engaging, the pairs’ strong Northern Irish accents only add to the entertainment, with the boys demonstrating a natural confidence on camera.
Arriving at a time when many remain cooped up at home and only just now cautiously beginning to take steps out into the reopening world, the videos have found a captive audience among those seeking a distraction from the difficulties faced elsewhere.
To date, the boys have racked up close to two million views across all platforms.

The boys were so disappointed they didn’t get to join the webinar for farm safety (my fault) so they made up their own. Now there are a few jokes few in to lighten the mood so be prepared - and a wee bit of fighting too😂 Tag anyone with kids who may want to see the boys tell kids how to be safe around machinery 🚜
With a busy summer ahead of them on the farm and at home, here’s hoping to see more from the O’Neill brothers in the weeks and months ahead.
