People had so many puns after four horses 'invaded' a doctor's office in Armagh yesterday

One man quipped: “Perhaps they were a little hoarse.”

IT’S A WELL established internet tradition that local newspaper headlines give a window into Ireland’s soul that you just can’t get anywhere else.

And so it was in Armagh yesterday:

“Warning; Drivers urged to beware as horses on loose in Craigavon after invading medical centre”

Four horses INVADED a doctor’s office.

And the Lurgan Mail has photograph evidence of the potential apocalypse (without the horsemen):

The report makes for stellar reading:

The horses walked into the centre via the automatic doors.
One man quipped: “Perhaps they were a little hoarse.”
“The horses just walked in,” said another eyewitness.

Locals are saying one horse “sauntered” in

It’s like the setup to an old school one-liner

With the comments taking that premise and running with it:

The horse had a check up. It’s now in a ‘stable’ condition
they left with their tail between their legs

The autorities have been notified and it looks like it was dealt with swiftly.

Neigh bother to them.
