WATCH: Man's valiant effort to catch rogue ram on Clare Island ends in spectacular failure

Baby don't herd me.

Residents of Clare Island off Mayo's west coast were left in stitches when they discovered local man Christian Pinder getting into a bit of a twist with one of his neighbour's rams.

The day started off innocently enough when Pinder, joined by local pals, decided to go day drinking in the local community centre bar, where he was hard pushed to find a seat.

Upon sussing out his options, Pinder decided to think outside of the box and offer shelter to a local farm animal.

JOE spoke to his cousin, Conor, about how the make-shift seat came to be.

"There was a ram wandering around outside and the people in the bar started talking about it so he decided the ram might want a pint."

Following a good laugh and a few pints, Pinder set for home feeling all the merrier.

However, it seems that the ram had the last laugh – as it went rogue on Pinder's return to the house.

Pinder, attempting to catch the ram with the intention of returning it to his neighbour's farm, ended up chasing the animal quite comically around a house next door to the local pub.

And, we think we can quite confidently say, that the ram won this round.

Don't worry Christian, you'd had a few pints... You'll get him next time.
