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 this.

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 they are perfectly relevant and useful, sometimes they are really not.

We started showing you the kind of weird stuff we get sent, and you seemed to like it, and what makes you happy makes us happy, so here’s some more:

Hannah Callaghan spotted this “hero” (as she calls him!) on bank holiday Monday “nonchalantly strolling down Grafton St at 9am. And not a single f**k was given.” What a guy, Hannah, what a guy!

Caoimhe and Orlaith Gilmartin’s attempt at making an anniversary cake for their parents.  Holy God. We hope for Caoimhe and Orlaith’s sake they are three-year-old girls. We wouldn’t give that monstrosity to the dog!

“Plastic tables plus BBQs don’t fair very well,” read the caption sent with this picture. No, they don’t.

Chloe Coyle’s little girl refused to take this bucket off her head on a recent shopping trip to B&Q . In all fairness, she is totally rocking that bucket! Adorable!

“Some restaurants on Capel Street are quite classy.” That seems to be the case alright.

Liam Grennan, we have no idea how this crisp did not break in the pack, but you are right, it is massive.

We were sent this with a caption that  just read “arse”. I don’t know about the rest of you, but we can’t see an arse. At all.

Vincent Lennon spotted this signpost on a recent trip to Cavan. We totally ‘wet our plants’ when we saw it too. Gas altogether!

#SPEED DATING: Sara Tierney, Caoimhe Hannon and Orla Conneely were driving to Mullingar last weekend when this car passed them by and requested their number. We think they may have obliged. Let us know how you got on girls?!

Paul McNamara bought a box of six eggs last week and all had double yolks. He sent this image to of an egg he had “poached earlier with black pepper added strategically”. Oh, a pair of… eyes! We get it now Paul!

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.
