There are a few small hints that will distinguish a farmer from the 'townies'.

As stereotypes go, finding a farmer in the ‘big smoke’ is said to be a rarity. I want to debunk this myth once and for all.

Farmers, in fact, do enjoy a trip to the city and can be found amongst the ‘townies’ on occasion. In saying that, finding them won’t be too difficult, as there are a few differences of character.

If you ever lose a farmer in the city, here’s a list of things to look for:

  • Google maps? No need! I’ve a roadmap here form 2004;

  • Grafton St., O’Connell St., Dame St.? Hell to that, where’s Croke Park?

  • The uniform: Checked shirt, jeans and a pair of ‘tang’ boots;

  • “Where’s Supermacs?”;

  • “Stephen’s Green? Oh yeah, I know it! That’s where I parked the tractor before Christmas”;

  • Look for taxis that are heading to Copper Face Jacks;

  • “Jesus a pint is only €4 at home!”

  • Spot the lads with the packed lunch of sandwiches and a flask of tea, that usually gives it away.
