‘WHAT ON EARTH is that,” was a question muttered in TheJournal.ie offices, and, if Twitter is anything to go by — plenty of other places in Dublin this lunchtime.
Well, well, these two planes carried out a fly-past of Croke Park (and, by extension, the city) as part of this afternoon’s American Football event — and scared the bejaysus out of everyone.
There were reports of car and house alarms being set off in the area.
While one reader contacted us to say it sounded “like an earthquake” from Meath Street and was a “very frightening experience”.
“The glass shook at a pub in Westmoreland Street as I was walking by,” another TheJournal.ie reader told us.
No doubt there were also quite a few startled seagulls in the city in the wake of the fly-past, which, at the risk of labouring a point, was really really INCREDIBLY LOUD…
