WATCH: Stop the search, we’ve found Ireland’s laziest gardener in Clare

He might be lazy, but he’s also a genius.

Lawnmowers that had been gathering dust in sheds across Ireland have been put to good use this week, with many using the fine spell as an excuse to give their gardens a much-needed trim.

In county Clare, John Hogg was doing just that on Friday afternoon, but his garden is a sizeable one and he didn’t fancy pushing a lawnmower around it for most of the afternoon.

With no tractor lawnmower available, he invented one of his own, attaching a lawnmower to a quad and driving it around the garden to great effect.

Whether he knew his daughter Sinéad was watching we’re not quite sure, but she wasn’t about to pass up the chance to record this piece of gardening innovation.

Don’t try this at home, kids.

Cheers to John and Sinéad Hogg for sending this our way. Got a story for JOE? Hit us up on Facebook or Twitter, send it to our WhatsApp number 087-4001102 or mail editorial@JOE.ie.
