The Funny Side to Irish Animals

The Funny Side to Irish Animals

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as we all know, has more than its fair share of ‘colourful’ and, dare we say it, eccentric characters!

During our travels around the country we have discovered that the same can also be said of many of its four-legged inhabitants – our lovely Irish animals! From the north coast beaches of Northern Ireland to the rugged north coast of County Donegal we have been lucky enough to bump into a number of them. Some are cute, some can be a little bit rude, some are just plain weird and some just like nothing better than to have a good old laugh and enjoy a bit of ‘craic’! These are a few of our favourites so we hope you enjoy them đŸ™‚

Paddy was about to go on a trip to England. The day before he left, he asked his next-door neighbour, Mrs. Dunne, if she wanted anything from England. “Yes,” she said. “could you please find my son Neely. He’s been gone 10 years and has not written or phoned me, ever! I write to him but he never replies. I try to phone him but he never seems to be in. Anyway, here’s his address.” On the back of an envelope she scribbled: Neely Dunne, WC1, London, England. The next day, the man embarked on his journey. The plane landed at Heathrow. He got off the plane and was walking down the corridor when he saw a sign saying ‘WC’. He entered the room, and saw that it was a washroom. He proceeded to the first toilet stall, knocked on the door and said: “Are you Neely Dunne?” “Yes, but I ran out of paper,” came the reply. “Well, that’s no excuse not to write to your mother!”
