Christmas trees and Tinder Spar: 9 weird and wonderful things that land in TheJournal.ie inbox

Sometimes we are sent really useful news tips and pictures, other times we are sent really weird – but wonderful – things like this.

OVER HERE AT TheJournal.ie headquarters we get sent an assortment of information, images and stories from our readers.

Some of it is hilarious. Some of it is heartbreaking. Some of it is unintentionally brilliant.

While more of it is, well, just plain weird.

We stopped doing this post a few months back but decided to resurrect it after you all copped on and started sending in even more weird sh*te, as well as some wonderful shots.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes over the past few weeks. Keep ‘em coming.

This was spotted in Raheny last Sunday by Hilda. Yes, last Sunday, the 5 April.


While in sunny Galway on Thursday, courtesy of Deirdre Costello’s walk to work…


A reader sent us this image with the caption: “Evil Zombie Prawn wants you to devour his people……”


Meanwhile, thanks James for this. Sent in with a note: ”It’s nice to see you to see you nice”


Siobhán O’Connell was home in Cork for Easter, spotted this and says we’ve all grown #notions in her absence.


Spotted during the Cricket World Cup. Some amazingly brilliant captions.


Have you met Eurospar on Tinder?


And another, ahem, invitation.


We’ll end on a serious note. This devastating image, ‘Handle with Care’, was taken by Dave Gibson on Bank Holiday Monday morning as he made his way to the Road to the Rising event.

“The man was moved on by gardaí shortly afterwards”.
