It was revealed that Michael Healy-Rae's DNA is pure Cork on the Late Late last night

This couldn’t have worked out better.

THE LATE LATE had an ~interesting~ segment as its main event for its Patrick’s Day episode last night:

They had Maura Derrane, Eamon Dunphy, Jason Byrne and Michael Healy-Rae on to be DNA tested to determine their ancestry.

And sure enough the most stereotypical Kerryman’s DNA turned out to be the most interesting

He was “100% Irish” but the majority of his DNA wasn’t from Kerry at all… it was from Cork

Few dots in Kerry but look at that Cork region.

It turned out that Eamon was more Kerry than Michael

He took the news well though?

“This is car crash television”

It couldn’t have gone better for those watching at home

We were expecting a set of predictable results, but this shook everything to its core

If there was one man who was relying on a full Kerry DNA, it’s surely Healy-Rae
