There are so many social networks popping up left, right and centre that it can be tough to keep track. But Instagram is one application that is going nowhere fast, being snapped up this year by Facebook and being (finally!) Android-compatible. No one is safe from the burning desire to put a sepia tint on everything. But when you’re starting off, it can be tough to know what’s what!

To save you the hassle, we’ve compiled a handy list of the who’s-who of Irish Instagrammers. Word of warning: this being Fash Mob, our choice will be largely fashion-focused, followed by food and dogs, and not necessarily in that order. Let’s get cracking!

Angela Scanlon is no stranger to Fash Mob. Full-time stylist, writer, presenter and all-round supergirl, Scanlon’s pics show that she has enviable interior décor skills, a seriously colourful (and covetable) wardrobe and is not afraid to look cartoonish in front of the camera. @angelascanlon

Aoife Porter’s Instagram feed is full of colourful details – from snapshots of her work in marketing to shots of her life in Strandhill, where Fash Mob would like to retire to. @aoifep

Corina Gaffey is fashion editor of Stellar magazine and a super stylist with a wardrobe to match. When she’s not on set shooting Ireland’s top models, she can be found chowing down (and photographing her nibbles) at Bite, the hip new hangout co-owned by the Mr to her Ms, Anthony Remedy. @corinagaffey

Dublindiaries is a does-what-it-says-on-the-tin kind of Instagrammer. Dublin street scenes, Dublin skylines, Dublin characters and Dublin buskers. Lovely. @dublindiaries

David Lynch aka Gribers is a photographer whose Instagram feed says as much. This past week he was busy capturing the cheerleaders, footballers and sailors on the streets of Dublin. Heaven knows where he’ll go next. @gribers

Aoife McElwain is a food blogger at I Can Has Cook? who gives her food that vintage filter we love so well over at Instagram – when, that is, she’s not snapping pics of her dog, Daffodil. @icanhascook

Leanne Woodfull is a young and up-and-coming gun on the Dublin fashion blogging scene. Like Scanlon, she’s unafraid of pulling cartoon faces, and she documents her sartorial happenings on her Instgram, as well as on her blog, Thunder + Threads. @leannewoodfull

Niall Byrne, McElwain’s soon-to-be-betrothed, is possibly better known by his music-blogging moniker, Nialler9. Fash Mob thinks indie music has probably seen its day, but he gets a special mention for doggy pics and general out’n'about Dublin snapshots. @nialler9

Stephen Moloney is no stranger to Fash Mob, either – when he’s not busy snapping fashionable people on the streets of Dublin for his blog, he’s busy snapping, ur, fashionable people on the streets of Dublin for his Instagram. @stephen_moloney

Last but by no means least (it’s alphabetical, innit?) What She Wears is the Instagram feed run by the lovely Annemarie Boyhan of, well, What She Wears. Think behind-the-scenes press day snaps, race-day couture and make-up. @whatshewears
