Dublin Fire Brigade were called to Bohernabreena, Tallaght, yesterday after a group of students burnt their school. books.
The group decided to finish off the school year by having a bonfire and purging themselves of their academic workload. The "books of fire" caused an impromptu blaze that started a grass fire.
The Bohernabreena area is well-known area to locals. The reservoir and forest area is popular with hikers and sun worshippers.
The fire went out of control in the area and the Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) were called to deal with the flames.
The DFB had a tongue in cheek message for school leavers when they posted this message on Twitter:

It probably would've been wise to wait until you got your results, lads.
Here's how Twitter reacted and apparently burning school books is a bit of a tradition:
