Watch: Drivers dodge trampoline that was blown on to M7

A trampoline has blown on to a busy motorway, forcing cars to swerve out of the way, as Storm Brendan battered Ireland.

The trampoline was spotted on the M7, just before the exit to Limerick.

Local resident Michael Finnan, who filmed the trampoline, told the PA news agency: “We were on our way back home to Limerick and just as we were approaching the slip off to Limerick City… had to brake suddenly, along with others.

“A little debris from the fence it came over. It’s amazing it landed upright. Very high winds at the time.”

Mr Finnan said gardaí were informed.

Around 32,000 homes and businesses were without power on Monday evening with a status orange wind warning for Donegal, Galway Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo in place until 11.59pm

A yellow wind warning for Wexford, Cavan, Monaghan, Roscommon, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick and Waterford in place until 8pm.
