HERE’S what happens when you send men to a shop on their own – chaos is certain to ensue.

Skibbereen rower Mark O’Donovan has posted a hilarious video on his Twitter that shows the trouble that can happen when men are left loose in a shop without the necessary supervision, but these aren’t any ordinary men, we’re talking about four Skibb international rowers – Irish Olympic medallists Gary and Paul O’Donovan, and international oarsmen Mark O’Donovan and Shane O’Driscoll, who are all in Spain on a rowing training camp.

While Gary has trouble fitting a large TV and mountain bike into his basket, world rowing champion Paul’s attempts to pick up a spare tyre had better results while Mark, for some reason, took a shining to a dog house …

One thing’s for certain, the lads are better off sticking to rowing instead of pursuing careers as personal shopping assistants!
