10 more of the weirdest pictures we've been sent by readers

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

AT THEJOURNAL.IE HEADQUARTERS we get sent some random stuff.

You see, readers can send us news tips and pictures, and while for the most part what they send are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they are not.

Last week we gave you all a glimpse of the kind of weird stuff we’re talking about and because we have lots of examples, we decided to do another post.

So, here are some more of the weirdest pictures we’ve been sent by our readers:

We love this one – tourists warning all the locals in Doolin, Co. Clare about the fact that they are tourists and have no idea where they are going.

Remember guys, be nice to our tourists we need them for economic recovery.

Thomas Kearney sent us this one with the caption: “Oops”. “Oops” is right Thomas. How did you get yourself out of that predicament?

A picture of the men’s toilet in Toner’s Pub on Baggot Street, Dublin. You see, a new toilet door was fitted but it wouldn’t open or close, so they cut the door around the toilet. Genius.

Jordan Seymour ‘painted a picture of his dog’. Not to be confused with ‘Jordan Seymour painted his dog’ – like his original caption read.

This image was sent to We can see a grey mark on that tongue. Telling fibs again, were we?

Rebecca Dunne spotted this cyclist on the Quays in Dublin carrying a small dog in her backpack.

Almost as innovative as the cut door to fit the toilet.

We get the point of this sign, but what we don’t get is why someone would send it to us. We always leave grave digging to the experts. Always.

Thanks for sending us this spelling fail by RTÉ News, but maybe next time you should send it to them. #JustSaying

We have no words for this one. No words at all.

We don’t know why we were sent this picture of the Pepper Canister Church also known as St. Stephen’s Church in Dublin. But we like it.

If you’d like to send us some news tips or pictures email us at or

However, if you have any images similar to the ones above, maybe you should keep them to yourself.
