Video: Irish Boxing Legend Romps To Victory In 'Chaotic' Donkey Derby

Fresh off an appearance on Second Captains during the week - where he demoted Colm Cooper from the Good Wall - Barry McGuigan took part in Tony McCoy's donkey derby for charity on Saturday.

The Clones man romped home to victory, defeating McCoy (the greatest jump jockey ever) along with the likes of Northern Ireland's top goalscorer David Healy and Sean Cavanagh.


According to the Press Association, it was a 'chaotic' race with McCoy at one stage finding himself in a hedge.


Here's the finish with video by Carl Frampton.

Of course, it was not a patch on the greatest donkey derby of all-time which took place 21 years ago in Castletown.
