A clip of Michael Murphy, 17, fearlessly going down Patrick's Hill in Cork on his skateboarded has gone viral but one person who was particularly nervous watching the video was his mum Ger.
She told Independent.ie: "I didn’t know he was going to skate down the hill and when I found out I was shocked because it is very steep.
"But Michael has been skateboarding for years and has almost perfect balance and has rarely been injured over the years ‘touch wood’.
"Michael is an outdoors, Bear Grylls type of boy. Never in the house which is a healthy way to live.
