WATCH: This Lad Attempted To Race A Luas To The Next Stop


We have all seen many attempts of people trying to battle it out against a machine.

Well, this one Irish native decided to put our Dublin Luas to the test and see if he could race it to the next stop and jump back on in time.

We kid you not.

Conor Davenport from Wicklow got off the Luas at the Central Park stop and attempted to catch it at the next stop in Sandyford.

With just a Go-Pro attached to his head he set off his path of racing against the Luas.

The Luas website said the journey between the two stops would roughly take two and-a-half minutes and that’s not including the stop time, so Conor had just a few minutes to beat the tram.

Did he make it?

You’ll have to see for yourself but we are warning you, it’s a heart racer.

The video was shot and edited by videographer Robin J Kavanagh, who is from Greystones.

Fair play t’ya lads.
