A mass army of the undead has invaded Dublin City, attacking Dubliners and tourists, local news reported moments ago. A hoard of the flesh eating scourge was fist spotted in the city’s central St. Stephen’s Green Park at about 2pm.
The walking dead were then spotted rampaging, slowly, through the city’s Stephen’s Green/Dawson Street area, making its way through College Green and down past Fleet Street.
Coming onto O’Connell Bridge the zombie apocalypse took a left past the Quays before stopping in the world famous tourist quarter, Temple Bar.
Of course, this was not a real Zombie infestation, not yet anyway; this was part of the annual Dublin City Zombie Walk which this year was being run (or slowly shambled) for the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLI)
Twitter was the first to report the zombie attack, this is what it had to say.

Remember, if caught in a crowd of zombies pretend to be one – don’t draw attention to yourself.

Thankfully zombies can’t use technology but it’s best not to check into a zombie attack on FourSquare. They could learn.

Amidst all the fun @Gareth_O_Connor gave this sound advice,
There’s a zombie walk in town. This would a smart time for an actual zombie outbreak. Thank god they don’t have brains.
