Never Let The Tipp Inn Tip Out

Jimmy Wyles the farmer and his best friend Harvey the Hereford bull were on the way down to The Tipp Inn to get their Sunday roast.

While they were there, Jimmy saw a poster for a raffle. The prize was two thousand acres of tillage land in Lissaniskey, just outside Toomevara.

When Jimmy looked at the price of the ticket, he couldn’t afford it. There were only one hundred tickets. Each ticket cost €5,000. Jimmy thought that the only way he could buy one of the tickets would be to sell Harvey.

Harvey said, “That Zetor is as useless as Nenagh are at hurling. Maybe you should sell that instead.”

“I suppose so,” Jimmy replied. “I’ll throw it up on DoneDeal this evening.”

Jimmy wanted to be a famous farmer – a famous dairy farmer.

With two thousand acres, he could start his own line of dairy products: milk, cheese, butter, ice cream, chocolate and cream. Then he could buy a John Deere 6930 Premium.

The Tipp Inn was holding the raffle to stay open – they were in danger of going bankrupt. Everyone in the community loved their Sunday dinners and watching the match there. The Tipp Inn was anything but elaborate, but it was Jimmy’s favourite place.

Jimmy had the tractor up on DoneDeal for a week, but it just wouldn’t sell…
