THEY are a talking point in many towns and villages around the country – but north Cork may lay claim to the worst pothole in the country.
A user on site reddit posted a picture of a large pothole in on a road at Lismire in north Co Cork.
Following suggestions from some users that the image had been photo shopped, the user then posted a video to YouTube as further proof.
The man in the video is reported to be 6ft 2in tall – and is seen comfortable fitting into the pothole, although he appears to be a little chilly.
The video has been viewed almost 40,000 times since it was posted to the web on Sunday.
