MET Eireann have confirmed today that the devastating flooding seen around the country has in fact been caused by the collective tears of a nation, that weeped quietly to themselves while watching the Ronan O’Gara documentary last night.
Hundreds of thousands of people watched the ROG program, that spanned the last 4 years of the Munster man’s rugby life.
The main causes of the massive amounts of tears recorded, were down to slow motion match shots and emotional background music.
Coupling these elements with close up shots of O’Gara’s lifeless face, the viewing public couldn’t help but cry.
Cork was one of the worst hit areas due to the fact that the former Irish number 10 grew up in the Rebel county. Crying was worse there as fans were reminded of how much Munster could have achieved over the years, but didn’t.
Dublin slowly started to feel the effects of flooding, as the large amount of people on the rugby bandwagon realised they should be crying too, why exactly, they weren’t too sure.
Speaking to The Potato, Saoirse Ni Fhaloainn from Foxrock said:
“I mean, like, I was totes crying the entire time for Ronan O’Driscoll. He’s been such an awesome player for Ireland and Leinster and it’s so sad that he’s had to emigrate to find work because of the recession.”
Dangerous gale force winds were also recorded over night and meteorologists are claiming that this is down to the sheer volume of people blowing hot air up O’Gara’s hole. This is expected to continue for a number of days to come.
The flooding is a result of the one of the biggest emotional outcries the nation has ever seen. Irish history experts claim that the last time the country felt so emotionally strong about one single issue, was in during the Easter Rising of 1916.
Emergency services are working desperately to try and contain the flooding and to also put in preventative measures, so that they will be able to deal with the ramifications that a BOD documentary will bring with it in the future.
