A man has been filmed taking a dip in what is believed to have been Ireland’s deepest pothole.

Liam Keane, 21, told RTE News he decided to take the plunge because he “wouldn’t get a chance like it again”.

The massive hole, on a country road close to North Cork was caused by a burst main.

But bad luck to any wannabe skinnydippers - it has since been filled in.
