Video: Kerry Football Animals

Seeing as we here in the Millstreet Parish border the Kingdom, we are hearing that some of our farmers are having the same troubles as their compatriots further south on the Cork – Kerry border:

West Cork farmers are doing their best to look after disillusioned Kerry supporters as many of them turn up in their fields.

All in the spirit of the upcoming All-Ireland Final (Sunday 20th September 2009) between Cork and Kerry. The video is of course a reference to Paidí O’Shea’s infamous comment about the Kerry supporters being “animals”
