Try and watch this video while keeping a straight face. 

Footgolf is a relatively new phenomenon to hit Ireland and combines the sports of, you've guessed it, football and golf. To avoid any confusion, it's basically golf with footballs in place of golf balls and your legs instead of clubs. 

Leading the way in this sporting revolution is Footgolf Mayo which is located on the 36-acre grounds of the Westport Country Lodge Hotel. The course was the setting of this video taken by a group of lads who all get a fit of giggles as one of their party struggles to wade through the mud. 

The clip has done the rounds on social media in recent days and has now been edited into a dramatic 'movie trailer' sent into Footgolf Mayo by David Shaughnessy...

Brilliant stuff. Footgolf Mayo can be found in the village of Aughagower where St. Patrick is once said to have drank from a well before climbing Croagh Patrick. We're sure he'd have been very proud. 

Thanks to Tony Costello of the Westport Country Lodge Hotel for drawing the clips to our attention.
