Is there anything the Faythe Harriers club-man can’t do?
This evening, Wexford hurler Lee Chin will star as a guest presenter on week-long RTE programme ‘Big Week On The Farm’.
If fulfilling a role as a live presenter wasn’t daunting or difficult enough, as the title of the programme suggests, the Wexford town man will be discussing and learning about everyday life on the farm.
For a Wexford town native, Chin admits that “I haven’t a clue about farming”, so it’ll definitely make for some entertainment if nothing else.
“It’s going to be very interesting, it’s going to be a great experience.”
“I’m looking forward to getting a little bit of education in regards to it because there were a couple of times you’d be on bus journeys with the team and there would be a lot of farmers on the bus and you’d be asking, ‘What’s the difference between a brown cow and a black and white cow? What do they do differently?’ You’d just be asking silly questions.”
“They have the craic with me because I’m from town in Wexford and I wouldn’t have a clue about anything. The only field that I’m used to is a hurling field, that’s just about it.”
It’s going to be interesting.
The joint Wexford hurling captain was asked if he would take advice from some members of Davy Fitzgerald’s panel – but he jokingly insists that he wouldn’t trust them:
“I would not trust them. I wouldn’t listen to them because they could give me one or two bits of info and I could go and say it on TV and it would not make sense at all.
“So, I’m not going to bother [asking for tips]. I’m going to learn it all when I’m down there.”
It will be broadcasted live from Dungarvan in Co.Waterford and the programme starts at 7pm on RTE One.
