Marty Morrissey had the ‘best ride he’s ever had’ at the Ploughing Championships

Don’t ever change, Marty.

LAST NIGHT, RTÉ’s coverage of the National Ploughing Championships came to an end.

To mark the end of this year’s festival, Marty Morrissey was challenged to go on a 50-metre amusement.

Soon there was wailing, cursing and exclamations of “Lord above in heaven!”

Bravo, Marty.
