Eyewitness footage of the moment a group of gardai run from an oncoming wave in Howth has gone viral online.

The poor gardai were standing by the water in Howth when one spotted an oncoming wave and calmly walked out of the way.

The other two weren't so lucky, and ran for cover when the wave crashed against the side of the pier.

YouTube user 'susan mckiernan' was recording on her phone while sitting in an elevated cafe, further back from the seafront, and recorded the water rushing right up to where they were sitting.

Watch the video above.
