Irish TV's ‘Mysterious Hole On A Beach’ Report Takes A Hilarious Turn

Ireland’s Virgin Media News went viral this week with a TV segment on what it described as a “mysterious hole” discovered on a Dublin beach.

A report that aired on Wednesday suggested the small crater in the sand could have been the result of a “once-in-a-lifetime cosmic event.” A local astrophysics enthusiast claimed a rock found inside the hole could have come from space.

After the report aired, though, footage emerged on social media of two men digging the hole the previous day.

A “community note” added to the channel’s post on X, formerly known as Twitter, read: “It is in fact not a cosmic event instead it was dug out the day before by 2 lads with a beach spade.”

The channel clarified its story on Friday.
