This Limerick horse owner's gas interview on At The Races is the talk of the internet

“Hopefully there’ll be a miracle here today and as I say, if there is, this place is going to be wrecked.”

JOSH SHEAHAN, A pub owner from Co. Limerick, went viral a few weeks ago when he gave a highly entertaining and boisterous interview to At The Races.

Sheahan runs Top of the Town in Askeaton, Co. Limerick, and owns a horse of the same name.

The horse was competing at the Galway Races yesterday when At The Races approached Sheahan looking for some television gold and let’s just say he didn’t disappoint.

Sheahan and his entourage were in fine fettle, whooping and hollering before the race even began.

“If this horse wins, Galway will never again see the likes of it,” he told At The Races.

The ground’s gone against us. I’ve been praying all week. I slept with the horse last night for two hours. I’m rubbing his belly. I’m talking to him.

He then reiterated that there would be absolute scenes if Top of the Town managed to win the race.

Hopefully there’ll be a miracle here today and as I say, if there is, this place is going to be wrecked.

He ended with a reminder that he’s still single and regaled people at home with the story of a date that didn’t quite go to plan last week.

Ladies, I’m still single.
I took this woman out last week. Fourteen gin and tonics, €7.90 a go, and then she says, “My mother’s outside to take me home.”
