They all had pretty good aim to be fair

A video of a couple of Gardaí out on the balcony of an apartment building is going viral.

Now you might be thinking, 'what's so interesting about a couple of guards on a balcony?'

And you're right, there's nothing interesting about that, until you add in the fact that they are being pelted out of it with snowballs from two local lads and are not taking this snowy attack lying down.

In the video, the guards can be seen catching the snowballs and lashing them back at the lads who are standing on the ground below them.

And round and round it goes.

The video has been viewed nearly a quarter of a million times in less than one day!
