WATCH: Dáithí Ó Sé milking a cow at the Rose of Tralee will haunt your dreams forever

Make. It. Stop.

OK, to clarify from the off, it's a fake cow with fake udders. It was on stage at the Rose of Tralee. And Dáithí Ó Sé was milking it, literally and figuratively, for all it was worth.

Laois Rose Grainne Hogan comes from a farming background and revealed that she milks 110 Friesian cows, twice a day.

But Dáithí admitted that he doesn't know how to milk a cow, and Grainne found this inexcusable and decided she'd show him live on stage with a fake cow.

The moment actually summed up the Rose of Tralee pretty well, and as much as we love Dáithí, we're going to find it very difficult to get the running commentary from Dáithí out of our heads.

All in all though, it was a good first night for the live shows and Dáithí was in flying form throughout, bringing the best out of some of the Roses and managing to alleviate some of the early nerves.

Elsewhere, Carlow Rose, Shauna Ray Lacey, quickly won over many hearts by frankly discussing her parents' struggles with heroin addiction.

And Westmeath Rose, Leanne Quinn, squatted with Dáithí across her back. All while wearing a ball gown.

Some first night down in Tralee...
