The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that competition for the Irish Beard of the Year title is firmly underway and bristling with the result expected to go down to the last whisker. The 2015 winner was politician Gerry Adams

The winner will be announced to mark St Patrick Day on 17th March

The BLF says that while traditionally a land of predominantly clean shaven cultures, Ireland has in recent times become something of a centre for stylish and trendy beards.

Contenders for the title in 2016 include actors, comedians, political activists, journalists and rugby players.

The campaigners say the poll is specifically about the impact the beard of an individual has made in Irish public life and no other factor.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said to announce the Irish Beard of the Year on March 17th is a very modern way to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, although unfortunately there is not much evidence that that the great man himself had a beard.

The vote will close at 6pm on 16th March

  1. Why is leading writer, lecturer, theoretician and editor John Molyneux not on the list?

  2. Definitely the winner should go to William Crawley. His beautiful beard ticks all the right boxes for style sophistication sex appeal cleanliness thickness texture colour. He is just so gorgeous.
