A mechanical 'Bucking Bronco' has been installed in Dundalk's entertainment centre 'Buckaroos'.
The bucking bull has no less than 360 variations of speed and buck.
The mechanical bull came from Arizona and was brought to Ireland by hotel manager Cormac Rynne at a cost of £7,000. It's the star attraction at 'Buckaroos'. Cormac Rynne talks to reporter Conor Fennell about the current popularity of the urban cowboy look and lifestyle. He says,
The definition of a good cowboy is the hat, buckle belt, pair of boots and a good attitude.
