Seven of the weirdest and most brilliant pictures sent in by our readers

Sometimes we are sent really useful news tips and pictures, other times we are sent really weird stuff like this.

OVER HERE AT TheJournal.ie headquarters we sometimes get sent in really, REALLY random stuff.

While for the most part our readers send us news tips and pictures that are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they’re really not.

We used to post some of the weird stuff that got sent our way, and we’ve recently started bringing back the randomness.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes recently:

Na na na na na na na na Na na na na na na na na BATMAN!

One reader sent in this fabulous photograph entitled, “software engineer/part-time batman”.


Aw now

This van got snapped when it was spotted in Sligo.

Looking mighty 

One clever reader sent in this snap with the caption, “The campaign seems to be taking its toll on Hillary.”



We also got in this picture of a lifeguard hut in Bray. Flamin heck.

This image came in from Offaly with the following caption, “Seen this today in Tullamore, someone needs a confidence boost!”

Through the magic door

We also got a snap of this Bosco record.

“Here’s a great addition to any self respecting music lovers collection.” Agreed.


Chill time

This beautiful photo was taken by a reader at Abbeyshrule, Co Longford.

That dog looks very peaceful. Om!
