They say no deed goes unpunished and this has never been the case more than with Navan man, Donal Norton.
Over the weekend, Donal was at home when he was called to the assistance of a teenage gull who had been involved in a bit of a run in with a car.
Being a good citizen, he held the little bird and tried to help it recover. And recover it did.
Little Stevie, full name Stephen Segal, started to come around and wanted to thank Donal for his assistance in saving his short little life.
And what better way to do that, than by hopping up on Donal's head where he stayed, for three hours.
That's three hours, 180 minutes with a live bird stuck on his head.
And things, well, they got pretty tetchy.
Donal had to stay in the shed until he got some advice from Birdwatch Ireland who helped him out of the situation.
In good news, Little Stevie is doing well, but Donal's jacket, it's the real victim of this situation.
