This Kerry farmer has a super strong accent – can you understand what he is saying?

Nobody can understand this Co Kerry farmer's accent

When a farmer from Kerry appeared on a news bulletin people from all over Ireland and beyond had to strain their ears to try to understand what he was saying – with limited success.

Mikey Joe O’Shea’s accent was so strong that people have no idea what he was he was saying – we think the gist of the conversation was about stolen sheep.

The presenter reported that 60 sheep had been stolen on Mount Brandon, Co Kerry and that the devastated farmer was offering a €2,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to their return.

While people feel for O’Shea and what he is going through, they were also fascinated and perplexed by his strong accent – have a listen below. We think he might have said something about mountains but we can’t be too sure.

Thanks to the reporter, we do know that O’Shea is missing 60 sheep – and allowing for deaths and strays he believes that at least 45 have been stolen.

We hope the crime can be solved as soon as possible, but if O’Shea gave us any clues in his interview, we’re not sure if anybody would be able to tell.

O’Shea isn’t the only one though – can you understand these fellas’ rural Irish accents?
