An Irish motorist was filmed bringing celebratory joy to drivers on the motorway outside Dublin after they covered their SUV with white Christmas lights.

The dark-colored SUV was covered in hundreds of bright white lights as it made its way along the inner lane of the M1 motorway as it approached the Balbriggan junction on the Dublin-Meath border.

Paul McMurray was driving north on the highway when he honked the horn at the driver.

He later posted the images on the Internet.

He said, “I don’t know who was driving, but I hope they have a merry Christmas when they see this.”

The video was recorded on a dashcam in Mr McMurray’s car late last month.

The images show part of the string of lights fluttering in the wind.

MailOnline has approached the Irish Road Safety Authority for comment.
