Jet Skiers Perform Tricks On Flooded Roads In Ireland After Storm Jorge

Jet Skiers Perform Tricks On Flooded Roads In Ireland After Storm Jorge

After Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis brought their share of destruction and general inconvenience, this time the Spanish got their turn at naming one of the storms. Enter, Storm Jorge.

Now, while it's been pretty bad in the UK as well, the brunt of this particular malevolent weather front has been felt in Ireland. However, as you can see from the below video, not everyone is having a miserable time.

Yes, some folks over in Tipperary have been out on their jet skis, using the roads as their own private ocean.

It looks like a hell of a laugh, as well.

Aside from these jokers, Storm Jorge has largely been no fun for anyone else. In fact, some areas of Ireland have had three and a half times as much as the average amount for this early part of the year.

As anyone who has been to Ireland - or lives there - knows, that's a lot of rain, right there.

It's all made worse by the fact the recent storms have all arrived in quick succession, too. That means the ground is already waterlogged and saturated, and therefore flooding is a heck of a lot more likely.

The area shown in the video is thought to be a junction of the N65 road between Portumna in County Galway, and Borrisokane in Tipperary.

He's out there moving the bails of hay so the animals can be fed, and creating the waves so that the lads on the jet skis can have a bit of craic as well.

Anyway, the video was originally shared on Twitter by Tomás Ó Sé, and it's been liked more than 3,000 times in a matter of hours.

One delighted observer commented: "Some make hay, some make waves."

Another said: "That looks like great craic in fairnes."

A third person commented: "It would only happen in Ireland brilliant"

Well, at least they aren't letting the inclement weather get them down. When it's grim outside, you might as well try to enjoy yourself regardless.
