A Camlough man who is living in New York for a few years is now basically a ‘Yank’ he has claimed.
Eoghie McParland regularly takes to Facebook to show his American credentials by talking about how much he loves the New York Mets baseball team and the New York Jets American football team but he isn’t fooling anyone it has been revealed.
We spoke with one Newry man who lived in the Bronx for 27 years and he told us:
“I know Eoghie thinks he’s basically American now but truth is, I’ve spent more time in the toilet having a dump than he has in America. He hasn’t a notion about the rules of any of the American sports; it’s more of a status thing for him and his fellow ‘yank’ mate Karol Hughes.”
But McParland has hit back at these claims telling Newry Spud:
“Man, I can’t really remember what life was like back in the old country. I’m living in an Empire State of mind now, ya feel me braah? For sure ya’ll.”
