Pint explodes in Drogheda pub for no apparent reason

We blame ghosts.


LAST WEEK, PEOPLE were out celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Drogheda pub Barney Mac’s when something rather spooky happened.

The pub has shared CCTV footage of a pint exploding out of nowhere to the surprise of everyone in there.

So, what exactly caused the pint to explode? Can we blame it on the paranormal?

Well, the pub has playfully attributed it to “the ghost of Joe Murphy,” but others on the Facebook page have pointed out that this isn’t an unusual occurrence in pubs — it typically happens when a cold pint is placed in a hot glass.

As for the customer? Don’t worry. He got a new pint.
