Did Fermanagh provide us with the GAA Tweet of the Year last night?

There have been very good excuses for missing the start of a final in the past but this was a particularly agricultural excuse.

The person in charge of the Fermanagh GAA account apologised for missing the start of Division One league final between Ederney and Devenish because he was 'calving a cow'.

It's an unusual time of the year for calving ( the poor creature will be friesian... sorry!).

The tweet prompted a raft of retweets and replies.
