A hilarious video of a Kerry family attempting to help a bat out of their kitchen has been viewed over ten million times online.

The video, which has been widely shared by media organisations and on online platforms, was filmed by Tadhg Fleming from Ballymacelligott.

It shows Tadhg, his father Derry and mother Maureen, along with their puppy Basil in their attempts to get the unusual visitor back outside last Monday.

Derry Fleming says they never expected worldwide interest in the video:
