Across all social media platforms both in Ireland and abroad, you’ll discover fantastic Black Irish and Irish people of colour who are making excellent content to suit all tastes. One of the latest platforms to make waves in recent times is TikTok.
Whether you’re into travel, Irish humour or social commentary (to name a few), it’s great to see the diverse range of TikTokers based in Ireland.
Here are nine Black Irish and Irish people of colour to follow:

Shameless plug, I’m also on the platform. You can find me over on TikTok talking about things to do with the Irish language, general geekery and foraging.
