If you’ve been hunting for Pokémon in Ballyfermot, you might have noticed this rather hilarious (and shady) description at a Pokéstop.

The “Welcome to Ballyfermot” sign is a Pokéstop in the area, leading many people to it to collect items for their Pokémon.

Its description is what has people taking notice, however, saying: “Known as one of Dublin’s more grittier suburbs.”

"It's not that bad!" wrote one Twitter user alongside a photo of the description.

We think “Where Mary Byrne is from” would have been a better description, but whatever.
