The best at-home Irish Halloween costumes of 2020

The best at-home Irish Halloween costumes of 2020

HALLOWEEN 2020 might have been a little different this year, but people from all over Ireland still found a way to get in the spirit of things – no pun intended. 

With trick or treating off the menu during lockdown, Halloween enthusiasts were forced to have a low key scare fest in the company of their families at home. 

But that didn’t stop fans far and wide, young and old, from getting creative when it came to their costumes.  

Featuring everything from the Joker to Mary Lou McDonald, here are some of the very best costumes on offer from around Ireland. 

The Joker

This inspired effort is made all the more impressive by the fact the girl involved only just turned four!

Mary Lou McDonald

A self-confessed Mary Lou fan, this 11-year-old Dubliner gets top marks for attention to detail.

Luke Kelly

It may not be entirely accurate but what he lacks in detail he mades up for with sheer invention.

Connell's Chain

A pitch perfect tribute to the best thing about the recent TV adaptation of Normal People.

Tony Holohan

A spot-on impression, right down to the glasses, this might be the pick of the bunch.

Banshee Bones

An inspired celebration of Ireland's favourite Tayto snack at this time of year.

Stephen Donnelly

That beard. Would you look at that beard. It's a thing of beauty.

Jurassic Park

They were preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
