A Crossmaglen man has threatened the Balmoral Show with legal action after his wife was mistakenly awarded ‘Best Cow On Show’ while visiting the famous agricultural event today we can reveal.
Peadar and Grainne MacGiolla were enjoying the event this afternoon when the judge pinned the rosette for ‘Best Looking Cow’ on Grainne leaving Peadar furious.
Peadar told Newry Spud:
“We actually just went up as we love agriculture and we thought it might be a good day out. Little did we know Grainne was going to win Best looking Cow on show, I’m fucking furious to tell you the truth.”
But Grainne had a different opinion on the mix-up:
“I’m delighted to have won it, I haven’t won anything since I won £2 on a scratch card back in 2009. Ok, it was for a different species but I still take heart in the fact it said ‘Best Looking’ on the ribbon and trophy they gave me.”
