WATCH: A rogue trampoline has appeared in the middle a road in Meath thanks to Storm Hector

Storm Trampoline

We don’t think we’ve ever seen anything like this before…

Storm Hector has been causing havoc throughout the country during the past few days.

A number of counties, including Donegal, Mayo and Galway have experienced bad flooding, and fallen trees from Storm Hector have been affecting traffic all over Ireland this morning.

But this isn’t the craziest thing we’ve seen since Storm Hector’s unwelcome arrival…

While Steven Cooper was out driving on a country road in the early hours of Thursday morning, he came across something that you wouldn’t normally find located in the middle of an Irish road.

The rogue trampoline was located in Meath, between Agher and Ferns Lock. You really do not see that every day.

You’d want to be very careful if you’re driving in this weather.

A status orange weather warning for Donegal, Galway, Mayo and Sligo and a status yellow warning for Dublin, Kildare, Longford, Louth, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Cavan, Monaghan, Leitrim, Roscommon, Clare and Kerry was put in place on Thursday morning.

According to聽Met 脡ireann, Friday will bring about a brighter day and with sunshine forecast in聽many parts of the country.

However, there will be scattered showers developing throughout the day, mostly across Connacht, Ulster and west-Munster.
