Comedians take to the water in Co Fermanagh for Sky series

Two English comedians took to Lough Erne on our screens on Thursday night for the latest episode of a series where they try their hand at local newspapers.

In an episode filmed in Northern Ireland, Nish Kumar and Josh Widdicombe cross paths with Line of Duty star and Enniskillen native Adrian Dunbar while working a stint at Farming Life.

The pair jumped on a boat to navigate the Lough before visiting the home of Enniskillen Gaels, Brewster Park to hear about the investment in the club’s facilities.

A clip of the show shared by comedian Josh on his Instagram account shows both trying to make their way to Inish Corkish island, one of the more than 150 on Lough Erne.

After receiving a helping hand from members of the local Krishna group on Inish Rath, they make it to their destination.

The island is owned by the O’Doherty family of butcher’s fame in Enniskillen and the comedians get a lesson in butchery from Pat O’Doherty.

Asking Pat about whether any of his famous pigs have ever hurt anyone, Pat says: “If you come in here at night and they’re hungry, you need to be very fast on your wellies.”

Enniskillen native Dunbar later fills in Nish and Kumar on the plans for the local GAA club’s new clubhouse.

“We’d like to raise somewhere between three and four million pounds, “ Dunbar says.

“This is the clubhouse, it’s a bit sad now. It’s beyond its lifespan and what we need here now is proper facilities.”

The third episode of Hold the Front Page aired on Thursday evening, but all the episodes are available to watch on Sky On Demand.
