Paddy Murphy, the Irishman decides that before he gets too old he would like to see some of the world, so he jumps into a rowing boat and rows over to Scotland, then sets off walking through the country, down into England and then through Wales
Pretty soon news of his epic trek is reported in all the newspapers and on the local radio ND his affable, easy going nature makes him friends wherever he goes - he is constantly invited in to people's homes where he is fed and given a bed for the night
Eventually, he crosses into France, then through Germany, Switzerland, and eventually Italy, still making friends and winning hearts everywhere.
He finally decides to end his journey with a visit to the Vatican.
He is standing in St Peter's Square along with the thousands of others hoping to catch a glimpse of the Pope, when the very man he wishes to see comes out into the crowd and begins to bless them
Spotting Paddy, he comes over and says, "I've been reading of your adventures my son - I'm delighted to meet you; tell me, which part of Ireland do you come from?"
"Belfast, you Papish bastard"
