On the back of a story in Tuesday’s Irish Daily Star, the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show asked their listeners about any of those quirky little habits that our mammies have.

Under the hashtag #loveyoumambut, the Today FM listenership offered up some Irish gems. Some of them will be very familiar to us all.

Here's what you said:

The Irish Mam - Getting you to say ‘thank you’...then when you do she says...’don't mention it’.

Only using your whole baptismal name when you were in big trouble #loveyoumumbut

Spitting on tissue, then cleaning child's face.

I'll get the wooden spoon! #loveyoumambut

My ma used to call after us ‘Come back here I’m going to kill u’.  Needless to say we kept running

Shut your mouth and eat your dinner! #mammies

Getting u to try on new clothes in the middle of the shop not the changing room! #loveyoumambut

Telling you it was grand to go swimming at the beach in your Y-fronts, when it really wasn't.

You move away to go to college or work, and when you ring home every week the first topic of conversation is always who died

‘If it was a bag of sweets you'd be able to find it' #loveyoumambut

When you can't find something your Mammy would always say 'Where's the last place you had it ?' Good God if I knew that I wouldn't have lost it !!!

'Looking for something? It's in Nelly’s room behind the wallpaper'... #loveyoumambut

Irish mothers, they never want any fuss made over them, so my favourite Irish mothers joke is this: How many Irish Mothers does it take to change a lightbulb? "Ah no, sure aren't we grand sitting here in the dark"! 

"Look at the state of me! Why did you have to go putting that up on Face Book?" #loveyourmambut

Being doomed to Hell if you didn't know "who said Mass?" #loveyoumambut

What are your favourite mammy sayings? #loveyoumambut... Let us know!
