Once again, farmers from around the country have stripped down for the 2017 Irish Farmer Calendar, in aid of charity Bóthar.

The boys are back for the eighth year in a row as, once again, farmers from around the country beef up and strip down for the popular Irish Farmer Calendar.

2017's issue sees them lose their shirts but not their sense of humour as they get down and dirty in various suggestive poses.

Our homegrown hunks pose with goats, rabbits, a highland cow, sheep, a pig, a dog and even snails in aid of charity Bóthar, which aims to tackle worldwide hunger and poverty by sending livestock to developing nations.

Ciara Ryan, the brains behind the venture, joked: "This year we tried to make snails sexy. I believe we succeeded."

This year's calendar was shot by photographer Ian Shipley on location in Newbridge House, Swords, County Dublin.

The calendar has proved a success all over the world, with fans in Australia, UK, Germany, Brazil, Japan, Canada and South Africa. It's also set to grace coffee tables in the US as a top publisher has committed to a book deal.

St Martin's Press, one of the biggest literary conglomerates stateside, is to collate the best pictures from the last seven years into a coffee table book which it will launch on St Patrick's Day 2017.
