An Irish Mammy had to hold her nerve as she tried to hoover a spider away from her kitchen ceiling.
Lorraine Walsh of Tralee was on her own in a battle against the eight-legged invader who was sat motionless in the corner between her wall and ceiling.
Walsh armed herself with her Henry hoover and prepared to suck the creepy crawly away for good, but when the moment of truth came, she struggled to go through with it.
Walsh’s close friend Eve Savage was also present, but instead of helping out during the crisis, she sat back and recorded the event on her mobile phone.
Each time Walsh got the end of the hoover nozzle close to the spider, the nerves took hold of her and she screamed the house down.
All along, Eve sat back and enjoyed the show, and now the video has been posted online for the whole world to view.
