A local man who decided to research his family history online has discovered that he is 40% gobshite. Brian Dunne spent €90 on the website MyAncestry.com to find out more about his background and who his ancestors were. Brian said he was surprised to learn he comes from a long line of gobshites.
“I used to think I was part Mexican. My grandad always told me we were descendents of a famous Mexican bandit but it turns out he only said those things because he was a gobshite.”
A woman we spoke to said there was no need for Brian to spend his money on research.
“He should’ve just asked me. I’ve always known he was a gobshite.” said his Mother Bridie.
