A video in which an elderly Irish man shares his true feelings towards St Patrick’s Day has been viewed more than 300k times on Facebook.
The Dublin man appeared in a segment on TV3’s Midday programme yesterday where he explained why he’d rather avoid the Paddy’s Day celebrations.
“I’ll stay in the back garden with my dog. I think it’s the greatest load of ponce and wants,” he said.
“All the Americans are over saying ‘Oh My God I Love Ireland’ and they do my ****ing head in,” he said.
“I’m telling you. I hate it,” he said.
The team at Midday, which was hosted by Sybil Mulcahy, proceeded into fits of laughter and volunteered to spend the bank holiday with the outspoken man in his back garden.
