About Senan Byrne

“That Irish guy on Vine,” Senan Byrne began 2016 by posting his now-famous helium balloon vine, which has since garnered nearly 50 million loops. It helped him to receive the very first International Creator Spotlight from Vine, and sent his account soaring, starting the year with 35K followers, and ending with upwards of 335K as well as 280M+ loops. His vines are silly and fun, usually with a little twist at the end, just like his motto, “I like coffee and Mexican food but not at the same time.” The nurse-by-day from Kilkenny is still spending his nights on social media, taking to YouTube along with his @SenanByrne Twitter, @Senan_Byrne Instagram, and @senbobaggins Snapchat.
