They've erected a Jim The Redeemer 'statue' up in Donegal

The good people of Laghey deserve a medal for this.

SORRY, RIO. YOUR Christ The Redeemer statue may be world famous, 38 metres tall and 28 metres wide, but the newest tourist attraction in the south Donegal town of Laghey is just as good (if not miles better).

Behold: Jim The Redeemer!

Just look at the incredible attention to detail to get the likeness of Jim McGuinness in his prime just right.

Amazing, isn’t it,

Now all Donegal need is for the sun to set early on September 21, behind the iconic statue (or is it more of a scarecrow?) during the All-Ireland final.


Thanks to Bernie Quinn for the glorious image.
