The Buckfast Christmas Tree Wars have begun!

Which bottle tree should be crowned Ireland’s greatest?

YESTERDAY WE BROUGHT you the news that the greatest Christmas tree in Ireland had been discovered.

Today, we may have to re-allocate that title. Yesterday’s masterpiece made from 69 Buckfast bottles is facing stiff competition from Devlin Connaughton, Sean Delaney and Niall Egan.

They claim to have used no fewer than 96 bottles of Bucky in the creation of their tree, and made a star topper out of the caps:

Also, they’re wearing elf boots and Niall is lying on the floor.

So which is better? Here’s Lisa’s again for context:

Lisa edges it on the lights and decorations, but she only has six tiers to the lads’ seven. It’s going to come down to the wire. PICK A SIDE.

Poll Results:

Team Lisa (498)
Team Lads (397)
Peace on earth and goodwill to all men (ya sap) (212)
