SUNDAY afternoon in Clogher and John Reilly was well wrapped up in his Kilmeena GAA Club livery but plenty of people got to see more of him than ever during the week!
The Kilmeena manager was one of the 23 models for the ‘Irish Farmers Calendar’ and stood bare-chested in two different poses. And happy out he was too!  
The pictures were released on Friday, two days ahead of Kilmeena’s ‘make or break’ championship clash with Kiltimagh. It lightened the mood in the dressing room with plenty of slagging coming the way of the manager.
Kilmeena got a draw, which was enough to send them through at Kiltimagh’s expense, so the manager-cum-model was in good form afterwards.
“The boys are having good fun,” he told The Mayo News about the reaction among the Kilmeena players. “As I said, I’m a sexy farmer so I am as well to flaunt it!”
He was put forward for the calendar by his partner, Carlene, and was happy to do it ‘for the craic’.
