A local Carlow weirdo who we only ever see every four or five years comes out of hiding to help with the election count.
Francis Buccaneer who was never married or had any sort of relationship with anyone and could never hold down a job for any length of time and really never committed himself to society in any way except for his weirdness and scary teeth. So it seems that he is the perfect candidate to help count your votes in the local and European election and divorce referendum.
Returning officer Gary Blyte said “ Francis is a great asset to the count and loves getting stuck in”. Fellow counter and odd person Mary Ratigan said “Franny makes me look sane and I quite fancy him in spite of the fact that he is a lazy shite and gets well paid to sit on his arse and count bits of paper”.
Don’t forget to go and VOTE Ber Jennings No. 1 folks!
