I have recently been sharing many old Irish videos from the ’60s, ’70s and even ’80s. But today, I wanted to share a video from not so long ago, 2014. When the majority of Irish people migrated to Australia, they surprised their family members by returning to Ireland. I even did the same in 2015. I originally shared this on Irish Around Oz and felt it was a good time to share it again. Now, this is a different Stephen, not me, haha. It will bring a smile to your face. And with over 1.3 million views, I am sure many of you have seen it. 

Nicola was down at the beach in Rush, Co. Dublin, showing her mam a video Stephen had made in Australia explaining that he couldn’t get home for a family wedding. It ended with him running into the sea, saying: “If I start swimming now, maybe I’ll get there on time”. Watch the video to find out 


Did you enjoy this incredible video from 8 years ago? I certainly did. Be sure to give it a share or comment below. 

Thanks for stopping by, 

Stephen Palmer
