Every sheep, cattle, goat and turkey farmer in Donegal, from Dungloe to Raphoe, will be pulling up their braces and spitting tobacco at the chickens, in anticipation of a windfall, now that Donegal has a Minister for Agriculture in Fianna Fáil’s Charlie McConalogue.

I know that he wasn’t first choice for the position. He wasn’t even second choice. But he filled the slot on the third lap, so he must be congratulated for that.

The man is possibly a great neighbour and would have no bother helping to shift the heifers into the next field and so on and so forth.
