He was there ALL night.

A driver got himself very stuck along a very narrow Kerry road

Mistakes can happen to anyone but you do have to wonder just how this one occurred.

Last night, a driver decided to take a trip to the picturesque Dunquin pier in Kerry - where visitors get the ferry to the Blasket Islands.

Unfortunately, it’s a notoriously twisty, narrow pedestrian-only road - and the inevitable happened.

Yup, his car got completely wedged in at one of the tight corners.

For reference, this is the area we're talking about - beautiful but definitely not car friendly.

The photo was posted by the Blasket Island Ferries Facebook page, who discovered the man (as they point out, "a Dub!") first thing this morning completely blocking access to the pier.

"It would be the busiest week of the year for us, so plenty of people were a little annoyed at not being able to catch the ferry this morning," said Sibéal Ní Lubhaing of Blasket Island Ferries.

Speaking to breakingnews.ie, Sibéal said that the man had been there all night:

"The guy drove down there last night and stayed sitting in the car the whole night. He didn't ring anyone for help."

The man was let out though the boot this morning and the county council sent a digger to free the car in the last hour, which sustained plenty of scratches.

Not a mistake you make twice anyway and not one he's likely to forget in a hurry as the Facebook post has gone viral - it's already been shared over 1,000 times.
