NIGEL FARAGE has been duped for a third time into making a Cameo video with references to Irish republicanism.
The former UKIP leader previously recorded two bogus birthday greetings in which he was duped into saying "Up the Ra" and "Tiofaidh ár lá".
Now, he has unwittingly made references to Irish rebel song, Sean South.
In the latest video, Farage congratulates those taking part in the 'Amadán' fundraiser — amadán is an Irish word for 'fool'.

Thinking he's wishing luck to those taking part in a mountain climb in New South Wales, Farage then unwittingly refers to the song.
"A lorry-load of volunteers set off on Thursday and the leader of the gallant band is Sean South and this message comes from Garry Owen [Garryowen]," says Farage.
Popularised by the Wolfe Tones, the song recounts an IRA attack on an RUC barracks in Co. Fermanagh on New Year's Day 1957.
The lyrics mention "a lorry-load of volunteers" approaching the town of Brookeborough and that "the foremost of that gallant band was South from Garryowen".
Hoaxers have been able to trick Farage after he offered personalised video messages via the Cameo website.
The Brexit supporter will record a personal greeting for £73, while businesses are charged £1,095.
So while it has provided much mirth online, Farage hasn't done too badly out of the short clips.
Quizzed on whether he actually knew what he was saying in the "Up the Ra" video, Farage told the Daily Mail he believed it was an innocent request.
He added that he does lots of videos, often with innocent personal references or in-jokes he doesn't understand.
However, when Farage recently tried to discuss Irish history and conflict with RTÉ presenter Claire Byrne, she rebuked him.
Citing the video of Farage saying "Up the Ra", Byrne said he couldn't be that knowledgeable on the subject if he didn't know the meaning of the phrase.
