Brothers and Clondalkin natives, Philip and Paul Galvin, kept themselves busy over lockdown developing their comedic voiceover style to incorporate adapted versions of popular songs by Lady Gaga and The Weekend, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Best known for their comedic voiceovers of the Irish series Fair City, the pair behind the YouTube channel Irish Funny Voiceovers began experimenting long before the emergence of social media, by messing around with a camcorder in 1997.

Philip, who has appeared in a number of Irish television shows, including Love/Hate, Mario Rosenstock, Red Rock, Fair City and Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie, takes care of more of the creative side of things while his brother puts his IT engineering skills to good use when it comes to the editing process.

“I don’t know why the Fair City stuff took off but people kept asking for it all the time and then the actors started enjoying it and messaging me separately about their characters too. Those videos have had the highest demand by far and have almost turned into a mini series”, Philip said.
