Video: This dancing postman from Tipperary can make even the most miserable person laugh

Meet Declan Dunphy, Ireland's moonwalking postman

Meet Declan Dunphy, Ireland’s moonwalking postman.

Your postman might always ring twice but we doubt that they can bust some brilliant dance moves like Tipperary postman Declan Dunphy.

We’ve a feeling that Clonmel’s best dancer might be the latest internet sensation after this footage emerged of him doing what he loves most, having the craic and making people happy.

Declan’s daughter Aoife tells us that her dad has been delivering the post to the people of Tipperary for 16 years now and that there’s rarely a dull moment when he’s around.

Being a postman can be tough work at times, all those early starts and harsh weather might be enough to dampen most people’s spirits, but Declan seems like an absolute champ of a man.

Having seen this great footage of Declan dancing to Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop ‘Till You Get Enough, there’s only one man that we want to deliver all those bills into our office.

FYI, if you want Declan to deliver your letters then we’re told that he’s also fond of the Bee Gees and Uptown Funk.

This is class.

Declan Dunphy , you'd make the most miserable person laugh
