“I’m not sure how it got loose, but I just saw it coming loose and flying across the road as we were driving,” Erin Van Londen, from Portmarnock, said.

The yellow creature had been a feature at a funfair in the Santry area. Local councillor, Cllr Paul McCauliffe has said that he wants to find out if the correct health and safety measures were in place.
