Comedian honours “baaa-d” promise

It’s hard to pull the wool over Donegal GAA supporters’ eyes and one well-known county supporter has turned an online laugh into a donation for the Ulster Champions.

It’s hard to pull the wool over Donegal GAA supporters’ eyes and one well-known county supporter has turned an online laugh into a donation for the Ulster Champions.

Well-known Scottish comedian, Frankie Boyle, had shown his support for Jim McGuinness’s men during last Sunday’s showdown with Down.

He tweeted on his social network site that because of his “complex cultural background” he felt obliged to say, “Come on Donegal”.

The Mock the Week star is understood to have relatives in the Rosses area and visited there frequently in the past.

He then tweeted that if Donegal won the match he would “buy every man on the team a sheep”.

As the full time whistle went he took to the internet again to say well done and did anyone know where he could buy “15 cheap sheep”.

In the days after the game he updated his profile to say he was “working on it. There will be sheep!”

Yesterday the often controversial Scot tweeted that “Quite rightly Donegal GAA felt a flock of sheep would have been a pain in the arse. Have sent you a wee donation instead. See you in the All-Ireland.”
