Grab the misses 

The All Ireland Wife Carrying Championships is making a comeback this year at Glenarm Castle, Co. Antrim, on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 July.

According to the organisers of the All Ireland Wife Carrying Championships;

"any one of the many recognised holds will be accepted including bridal carry, piggy back, shoulder ride, fireman’s carry or wives can hang upside down on their partner’s back with their legs crossed in front of their face."

The statement also notes that "it’s not for the fainthearted, competitors enter at their own risk and registration is free. Helmets must be worn and competitors who drop their wives will be penalised."

I would say just do you boo!

The winners of the wife carrying competition will be jetting off on a holiday to Venice!
