Comedian Eleanor Tiernan nearly stole the show when she put Ireland on the psychiatrist’s couch at the We Need to Talk about Ireland event on St Patrick's night in Dublin's Mansion House. Watch her diagnosis here!

Eleanor read out a tongue in cheek litany of Ireland's many mistakes, hang-ups, and minor tragedies over the years on the night which was organised by RTÉ and Trailblaze.

Shown exclusively on the RTÉ Player, the event attracted writers, musicians, and comedians to explore "what it means to be Irish in 2014."

It wasn't all talk though - Daithi and Iarla O Lionaird, along with Crash Ensemble, raised the rafters at the Mansion House too.

You can watch We Need to Talk About Ireland on the RTÉ Player and the RTÉ YouTube channel. Check out these highlights.
