David Ellis from Westport created the musical pattern on the grass to convince his girlfriend that they needed a new drone.

“I did it out of boredom, I hate cutting the grass,” said David. “I wanted a drone but my girlfriend said it was a lot of money to spend, so I said I’d show her what I’d use it for.”

David said it took him an hour and a half to cut the three patterns into the grass but that he “managed to convince” his girlfriend into buying the new drone.

The musician who plays in the Late Night Seisiún band previously cut a maze in his garden so he’d only have to do “half the work” in the garden.

He also cut “c’mon Mayo” into the grass when they were in the All-Ireland final.
