The internet is still trying to decipher this Kerry farmer's accent
Last night there was a segment on Six-One News that people are still talking about this morning.
If you missed it first time round you can get the full story here, but basically a farmer in Kerry is offering €2,000 to anyone with information that might help locate his 60 missing sheep.
While that isn't entirely un-interesting by itself, people were left in ewe awe at the farmer's unique accent.

It is not unfair to say that some people found his accent more than a little ... impenetrable.
That accent on the West Kerry sheep farmers on the news was amazing...

@jacktink I can't tell if he's jumping between Gaelic and English

Did anybody else see the Kerry farmer talking about stolen ewes on the Six One? The most impenetrable accent ever to grace Irish TV probably

@meganrome I have to listen very carefully to get it and I'm missing bits. It's a great story telling accent down in Kerry.

@liamstack Is he speaking English? The farner? If so, I can't understand a single word. Hope he gets his sheep back though.

Personally, it reminded us of one of our favourite scenes from Hot Fuzz.
