Meet the Irish granny (89) who can do trick shots better than you

This Tipperary granny is only further proving the fact that the premier county is the home of sporting greats.

North Tipp native Sean O'Meara shot this video of his 89-year-old granny Mary O'Meara whacking a ball into a wheelie bin, but possibly not all is as it seems.

Since Sean posted the video last week, it's been viewed more than 13,000 times and shared by close to 100 people, which his granny finds hilarious.

"She thinks it's very funny," Sean told

"She never even questioned what we were doing it for. She's always up for a bit of craic."

Granny O'Meara turns 90 this August.
