Yeah, I do it naked. I don’t do it with great expertise, just the joy of it – the dog does it with me. It saves me taking him for a walk. We just go out and bounce for a while.The dog loves it. In fact, I caught the dog doing it on his own. Two dogs belong to my grandchildren. They got a new one at Christmas, but they are not very good at cleaning up, so that falls on me. I have had a dog since I was four or five, so I wouldn’t be without one. We trampoline when we get together, to make up for lost time. I get home most weekends, sometimes not for the entire weekend. There is something special about hillwalking with a dog.

Gerry Adams TD, leader of Sinn Féin, talking about his love of trampolining.

Asked if the dog can do any tricks Mr Adams said: “I don’t want to discuss it publicly – but yes.”
