eddies sheep Irish amateur legend Eddie McCormack lies just one shot off the lead at the Portuguese International Amateur Championship but golf was the furthest thing from his mind after he completed his first round at Montado.

The 49 year old Cavan man who bought a house and farm on the cheap in Galway told reporters “I’d swear I left the gate in the back field open.  And if I did those feckin’ sheep will surely find find their way onto the runway at Galway airport.  They love that, so they do.”

Asked about his round which included seven birdies McCormack continued “Ay sure I’m doin’ me best buh the course out here is yellow.  If I had the tractor I’d give it two blasts of 10.10.20 fertilizer eight weeks apart.  And them greens, all they need is water, they are crustier than a Mother Hubbard’s rasher.”

sheep Later McCormack received good and bad news from home after a neighbour texted to say the back field was shut, all but one of the 1200 sheep were in, and the 50 that were sent to the factory made a tonne of money.  Unfortunately one sheep had made it to the runway and got flattened by a landing Fokker 50 from Dublin.

Next best of the Irish contingent was ‘on the fags, off them again’ Eoin Arthurs  whilst Alan Dunbar struggled in the heat with having too much hair.
