The story of the missing sheep in Co. Kerry has quickly become national news and even warranted a segment on the RTÉ Six One News yesterday.
60 ewes have apparently been stolen from Mount Brandon in The Kingdom and a couple of farmers appeared on the telly last night to their tale.
The thing was, people struggled to decipher what one of the lads was saying. Mikey Joe O’Shea both bemused and dazzled with his West Kerry lilt as people struggled to understand a word he was saying.

Brilliant stuff. The farmers are offering €2,000 to anyone with information that might help locate the missing sheep so let’s hope they find their way home soon.
