Google have launched a new ‘Sheep View’ service aimed specifically at South Armagh sheep ‘enthusiasts’.

The service launched this morning in a field in Crossmaglen.

Google Ireland boss man Dermot Sullivan told Newry Spud:

“The new online service allows sheep to be ‘admired’ from the comfort of one’s bedroom. It means that south Armagh lads can now browse sheep from all over the world – not just here in Ireland as was traditionally the case. Lads can bookmark their favourite sheep and even jot down their location should they want to arrange a meeting between the two. It’s also beneficial for the sheep as they won’t be disturbed while they’re out just doing their usual sheep stuff like standing around and following each other.”

South Armagh sheep enthusiast Peader Quinn told Newry Spud:

“I can’t wait to check out this new service. It means I can compare sheep from all over the world at the click of a button. I’d like to thank Google for opening up a whole new world of possibilities.”

The new service will allow users to search for sheep according to their location, their breed and their inclination for a romantic interlude after work on Friday nights.
