Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment bales of hay fell from a moving truck in Ardee in Co. Louth and flattened a nearby electrical pole.
Publican Mark Conlan, from Hamills of Number 19 pub, posted the incredible footage of the incident on Wednesday night, showing just how lucky it was that no one was hurt.
Damage was done to nearby property, while an electrical pole was also knocked to the ground.
Amazingly, the truck driver didn't seem to be aware of his fallen load as he drove on.
ESB crews have since carried out repairs in the area.
