Muff News

Travel: I’m just back from a great road trip around Nevada and Arizona — lots of fun was had, and I even came out $100 up on the blackjack!

In other travels, my mate Eoin recently visited Muff, Co. Donegal, and made sure to get a picture of the event.

Muff is well-reknowned as one of those towns with a silly name; the story goes that they even have a SCUBA diving club, called — guess what — “Muff Diving Club”. Sadly, the reports are apparently greatly exagerrated. Eoin writes:

I have been hearing the story of the ‘muff diving club’ for the last 10 years, and now i can categorically state that its an urban legend. No such thing. There was a ‘top muff’ petrol station though where we picked up a few keyrings. The girl behind the counter was trying to give us all 200 keyrings left in the bag as she was so sick of muppets like us coming in for a laugh.

    It’s true there is a diving club or at least there is a website to back it up.

    I hear the smell is bad, or at least, strong. ;)
