A KERRY woman has gone viral with her hilariously Irish reaction to news of a great white shark sighting off the coast of Australia.
Great whites are responsible for more recorded human bite incidents than any other shark and represent a potential danger to surfers and swimmers alike.
So, when one was spotted off the Sydney coast, sunseekers around Tamarama beach and beyond were advised to get out of the water.
The shark was spotted patrolling the shallow waters close to the beach area.
It was said to be chasing a seal at the time but nevertheless represented a risk to anyone swimming nearby.
With that in mind, the beach was closed though thankfully 7 News Australia was on the scene to gage the reactions of those who had been there to surf the waves.
They included one woman from Kerry, Ireland, who offered up a distinctly Irish take on the whole matter.
Swimmers and surfers at Tamarama beach were this morning told to get out of the water or risk a potential danger. A large Great White shark was sighted, calmly patrolling the shallows and chasing a seal until lifeguards managed to chase it back out to sea. #Tamarama #7News pic.twitter.com/ZVDLaoq9qN

The most dangerous thing the average surfer or beachgoer in Ireland faces is a stray jellyfish.
So it was great and quite amusing to get a different take on the whole matter, which can be enjoyed in the video above.
While others express shock at the sighting, she’s suitably laid back, remarking: “Really? I didn’t even know that, like.”
She doesn’t miss the opportunity for a bit of craic either, telling her interview “we actually watched Jaws today”.
Hilariously down-to-earth and worthy of repeat viewings, it’s great to see Irish folk imparting their wisdom on the world and doing us proud in the process.
