Family Fortunes

A family from Muff in Donegal appeared on an Australian gameshow and the host lost it

It’s a real place, people!

IRELAND IS HOME to a lot of weird and wonderful place names.

There’s Skeehanarinky in Tipperary.

Sure there they all are now.

And obviously Moneygall is worth a mention.

Honourable mentions should go out to Nobber and Hackballs Cross, respectively.

But arguably, the funniest place name in Ireland has to belong to the town of Muff in Donegal.

It’s a little town just outside of Derry.

This week, a contestant named Caitlin, originally from Muff, appeared on Family Feud – the Aussie version of Family Fortunes, essentially.

And to say the host Grant Denyer could NOT cope with the name is an understatement.

It got worse when he found out what school Caitlin went to while living there.

I actually went to school there and the school was called Hollybush.”

To which Denyer responded by asking:

What’s the entrance to Muff like?”

Caitlin spoke highly of the clear signage in the town, saying that vistors are greeted with a ‘You Are Now Entering Muff’ sign as they cross the border.

“This story’s made me so happy,” he said through fits of laughter.

In bits.

Caitlin also spoke about the popular water-sports in the town of Muff – notably diving, at Muff Diving Club.

Set up in the late 70s, Muff Diving Club has been one of the one of the most successful diving clubs in Ireland. with members as far a field as Australia and South Africa.

You can even buy merch from their ‘Muff Shop’, if you stifle your laughter for long enough.
