A pigeon ruffled a few feathers at a Dublin school yesterday when it left its mark on the State examinations.
The bird swooped into the exam hall at St Mary's College Senior School in Rathmines before it "deposited upon" some Junior Certificate papers.
In a tweet, the school said the unfortunate event happened during the Religious Education (RE) exam.
However, it reassured students left in a flap that they would not lose marks for "poor presentation".

If the pigeon remains in the exam hall tomorrow, the German exam will be moved to the study.
The candidates today whose RE papers were deposited upon by the pigeon, will not lose marks for poor presentation.
The school faced having to move today's German exam to the study, but this morning explained that the pigeon has now left the building.

We wish it a long and happy summer.
German exam today at 9:30 in the usual venue.
