Udderly hilarious: This Meath man’s Macra na Feirme campaign video is a thing of beauty

It’s the most delightfully Irish thing you’ll see today, we promise.

THINK MACRA NA Feirme business was the farthest thing from viral video material?

Think again.

Meath man Eamon Cassells is a well-regarded member of the Athboy Macra branch, but this year he wants to go all the way to the top and claim the presidency.

He’s created an excellent campaign video (which looks to be inspired by a recent Lucozade ad) that spells out the skills that make him the right man for the job.

They include:

Cow riding


Stock judging


And cow inseminating


And many more.

According to the Farmer’s Journal, the elections will take place in April of this year. Good luck and god speed, Eamon. (Other candidates, obviously, are available).
