Christmas drink ad student: ‘I’m inundated with offers’

The university student who offered to have a 'pint with anyone' this Christmas has been snowed under with offers.

Student Shane is selling the chance to spend an evening drinking with him through classified ads website

He has received plenty of texts and phone calls since placing the ad as a joke last weekend.

''I put it up on my facebook page as a joke, thinking only my friends would see it. I didn't realise it was going to take off the way it did,'' he told

The student put it up for a laugh to see what his friends were up to last weekend.

Alongside a picture of himself he wrote, ''Shane will regale you with anecdotes from his colourful life in Navan town while taking an active interest in any tales you might care to tell.''

He also added that, ''he was in good condition for his age but not mint.''

He explained that he had received an offer from a man who had just moved into the town and was looking to meet new people.

''I'm not into meeting up with strangers over the internet,'' he laughed.

He said that despite all the calls, he is busy until Christmas and unfortunately wouldn't be taking up any more offers.

''It was just a bit of craic,'' he joked.
