A Donegal man is celebrating today after getting his picture in the paper.

Sixty-three year-old Colm Nuachtán happened to be standing in the foreground of a random shot of some bunting in Creeslough on a sunny day, that got used in a local newspaper to illustrate some shite story about the weather.

“Jeesh all my life I’ve wanted to get into the paper,” exclaimed Nuachtán, critical of the usual photographs he sees:

“Normally all you see in them papers is a bunch of auld ‘wans after playing golf”, he told us, adding that we was “pure delighted” to finally be given his chance in the limelight.

Hopeful that his random appearance inspires a new generation of Donegal people looking “to make a quare shot of gyettin themselves in th’on rag,” it is believed Nuachtán will start going to GAA matches and table quizzes.

“At least my face is not next to the death notices,” he quaffed.
