Hump Day

There is at least one camel on the loose in Finglas

This guy has packed his hump and is saying goodbye to the circus.

THIS IS NOT a drill.

There is a real live camel out for a stroll in Charlestown, Finglas.

Brendan Hurley spotted the camel out for a walk earlier today.

Nobody’s sure if he just got the hump with the circus (sorry), or if he’s spitting mad (again, sorry) about a lack of freedom, but here he is casually strolling around.


However, the camel may not be alone. AA Roadwatch has said that there are reports of camels on the road.


After they are done, we wonder if they stopped for some relaxing camel-mile tea. (I’m so, so sorry.)
