PICS: A pro-Trump sign in this Mayo town produced an ingenious, Father Ted-inspired response

Something tells us Donald Trump wouldn’t be welcome in Foxford anytime soon.

The Republican candidate for the Presidency of the United States isn’t exactly Mr. Popular at present and voices of disapproval can be heard in Ireland as well across the pond in America.

You may have heard about the café in Derry offering a 10% discount to American visitors not voting for Trump in November, while the frostiness towards him has extended west to the town of Foxford in Mayo.

When one Trump supporter in the town took it upon themselves to erect what has been described by local publican and Councillor Neil Cruise as a “very large” Trump election poster at the entrance to the town, locals were said to be “furious”.

It wasn’t long until one bright spark came up with a response fitting of the town’s feeling towards Trump, however; a response inspired by one of the most famous scenes in the history of Father Ted.
