Are you a Hunk or do you know a Hunk or do you even know what a Hunk is? Well the Truagh GFC are searching for a Hunk to take part in a new and ‘exciting’ competition which proceeds to All-Ireland level. Now it has little to do with Football, Hurling, Handball, Ladies Football, Camogie or Rounders but a couple of well-known personalities in Ulster have come up with this idea, which raises money for the club, for charity and presumably for them. It should be all good fun and for the Truagh winner there are prizes but he will also represent the Club at County level and if a winner there he will go on to the Ulster final where he could win €12,000.
This is an opportunity for all those fine looking and attractive young males to allow their names to go forward in the competition. The event for the Truagh Club was launched last weekend and some of the contestants already signed up were present. The unofficial judging began almost immediately with sharp eyes weighing up the talent. If one were to go by the audience response to the appearance of one late comer then one could imagine him winning but then this was early days and ‘six-packs’ have still to be toned up and more gel added. ‘The New U’ at Mullaghcor has admitted that there has been an increase in male appointments in the past week and most are requesting laser treatment with some waxing. Ciaran has offered his Car Wash facility if any of the contestants really want a powerhose down while Mackie has unearthed a blow torch which will remove blemishes and hair easily and fast and is less painful than waxing and it tans the skin at the same time. Denis can provide physical exercise for anyone by gathering potatoes and loading scrap metal on trailers. Brian can provide hods for leg and arm building exercise. However it is being left to each contestant to decide in secret how to prepare for this prestigious award of The Tru-Truagh Hunk and each will organise his own backroom team. Owen Joe will be in demand.
Here are some of the contestants and you can start judging for yourself.
