Bat causes chaos in Irish couple's kitchen

Bat flies into house in Kerry and causes havoc

The hilarious scenario developed further when Tadhg's dad tried to catch the bat with a tea towel.

But that's what happened to the Flemings in Kerry and Tadhg Fleming has been sharing pics and videos of the event on social media.

The video, titled The Father, proves that there's never a boring moment when Derry is around.

Within hours of being shared, the video had been favorited and retweeted tens of thousands of times Tuesday.

But as the battle between man and bat continues, Tadh's mum watches on in hysterics - with her face pressed up against the kitchen door as she peers in.

"You're tiring him out, he's like McGregor, has no legs left" he adds, in a wisecracking reference to the Irishman's blockbuster fight with Floyd Mayweather.

The expletive-laced video shows the creature swooping through the room as the family's helpless patriarch attempts to nab the bat with a mere towel and the rest of the family unloads riotous commentary from the sidelines.

And the poor family's pet dog runs around helplessly before wetting himself on the floor in the excitement. You're going to need a bigger towel.

Finally the ba t is caught and released with a reassuring message at the end of the clip that "no bats were harmed" in the filming of the video.
