'Dust devil' whirlwind sweeps Irish farmer's hay into the air

An Irish farmer captured the moment a 'dust devil' whirlwind swept his hay into the air.

Johnny Connolly's video shows the dust devil, which is caused by a swirling updraft during sunny conditions, in full force.

The Kildare farmer told the Farmers Journal it left a track of 100ft wide through the hay.

Flat, dry land, sunny conditions and low winds increase the likelihood of dust devils.
