Irish farmers set pulses racing with topless calendar

Some of Ireland’s most handsome farmers have set pulses racing as they stripped off to pose topless with cute farm animals.

The annual Irish Farmers Calendar, now in its 13th year, is back once again with its 2023 edition as eye-popping as ever.

This year there’s twice as many agricultural hunks to admire as it includes photographs that were not published due to a Covid hiatus - with 23 images in the calendar instead of the usual 12.

The 2023 edition features farmers from Offaly, Mayo, Dublin, Wicklow and Kilkenny who were brave enough to bare their farmers' tans to a global audience.

In some shots, the farmers flaunt their muscles as they wield axes and pose with farm equipment wearing only jeans, wellies and a flat cap.

The calendar boys also show they have a softer side as they cuddle up to bunny rabbits, baby goats, cats, dogs, a lamb and a duck.

An alpaca even makes a surprise appearance in March and Santa Claus appears in December to gift one farmer a toy tractor.

The calendar is the brainchild of Ciara Ryan, who created it back in 2010, and it has since become a huge hit all around the world with sales as far as America, Japan and Brazil.

The Irish Farmer Calendar 2023 is on sale now at www.farmercalendar.com for €12.99.
