A series of Snapchat videos depicting a young man’s perilous journey from Shinrone to Rath, Co Offaly after a wild night out is making waves online.
Joe Troy, a 28-year-old Irish man from Offaly, has documented in a hilarious Snapchat Story his long and harrowing walk home after failing to get a lift home after a big night out.
The whole story was uploaded to Facebook by Joe’s friend James, and shows Joe walking “two to three miles” over an hour and a half.
Joe told BuzzFeed News he was meeting with mates at a pub to discuss the weekend’s senior hurling final, which he was to commentate, on a Friday night.
“It ran on until about 11:30pm and I wanted to make a friend’s 21st in the next town so got out there late, had a few more drinks and just decided I wasn’t going to [make] the party as I was wrecked and was to play golf early Saturday … rang a taxi and said I’d walk out of town to meet him, he got delayed a while, then it was cold and I was bored so I started snapping.”

“The running probably made the video and kept me warm,” he said. “It’s pushing into winter time alright but not too bad yet. We are hardy out this way.”
Eventually, Joe’s mother picks him up after she finishes work. She is … disappointed.
Joe said his mother has seen his Snapchat Story “several times” on Facebook now.
His long walk in the cold Irish early morning has been viewed more than 70,000 times.
