WATCH: Kildare farmer captures bizarre footage of a whirlwind causing havoc with hay

A day in the life of a farmer is never dull..

Especially for Michael Heffernan from Fontstown who captured this unusual footage of a “whirlwind playing havoc with his hay.”

He posted the bizzare video to his Twitter page (@martique75) two days ago, and it has gotten over 1,500 likes and 572 retweets.

The mini tornado-like occurence is believed to have been caused by one part of the ground heating up quicker than surrounding land.
