There were dramatic scenes off the Donegal Coast on Monday morning when construction materials for renowned singer Daniel O'Donnell's home-to-be fell into the ocean.

The truck was carrying tiles and other parts for 'wee Daniel's' home when it careered precariously off a pier and into the waiting Atlantic below.

A witness said that the lorry "slipped slowly" into the ocean after a mixup between it and the ship it was taking a delivery from.

The Marine Casualty Investigations Board will now be drafted in to probe the maritime mishap.

Dramatic amateur footage of the incident was posted to via the Donegal Daily.
