Those pesky seagulls have been the subject of much discussion lately. Last week a Kerry swimmer had to get a tetanus shot after being attacked by a seagull. And they've also been blamed for attacking animals and people, stealing food and phones from people's hands, and displaying other aggressive behaviour.

This afternoon though, they put another feather in their caps.

The Port Tunnel was shut down when a seagull appeared inside.

Shortly before 5pm today, authorities closed the tunnel when the gull broke loose inside.

However, a short time later, the gull was caught and traffic could flow as normal again.

"The seagull was injured so it was fluttering around and the tunnel was shut for two minutes."
