10 of the weirdest and most brilliant pictures sent in by our readers

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

OVER HERE AT headquarters we sometimes get sent in some really, REALLY random stuff.

While for the most part our readers send us news tips and pictures that are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they’re really not.

We used to post some of the weird sh*te that got sent our way, and we’ve recently started bringing back the randomness.

So here’s a look at some of the surprises we got when we opened our inboxes recently:

We know the feeling

Just an average summer’s day in Ireland – perfectly captured.


All the lols

These guys are obviously the funniest staff that any boss could ever want:


Wild Millie

Here’s a photo of Millie on the Wild Atlantic Way at Inishowen.


What now?

A reader sent in this picture of a new sign she spotted in the ladies changing room of her local swimming pool. She sent in the photo with the caption:

I’d love to know what happened to necessitate a sign like this…!

This photo of an egg on a floor came in with the following explanation:

I was talking to this girl in CHQ and as we left she starting eating this egg but it fell from her hand and split on the ground. Can you please help me find her?? I didn’t get her name.


The lads

This picture was sent in before the current government was formed but we still think it deserves an outing … mostly because that yellow really suits Enda.


Eye see you 

Well that’s a little freaky.

Not our chum
The photograph of this little creature was e-mailed in to us with the caption:
“I think you might like to take a look at this little glum chum that I came across on the harbour wall in Bray.”


Up close and personal 

Another wildlife one came in with the simple caption: “Moth on wall”.

Thanks for that Richard.


So confused 

What do you think of when you think of dessert? Ice-cream? Chocolate cake? Apple pie? – maybe cheese at a push but chips and onion rings? It’s just plain wrong and one reader got in touch when they spotted just that on offer:

This is what my local kebab shop thinks people have for dessert?!! …They could be right!!
