WATCH: These Clondalkin Residents Chased Rats From Their Neighbourhood With Hurleys

As you see in the video, the vermin have even gotten into the locals' cars...

Rats have taken over the Grange View Place area of Clondalkin in the past few months, and it looks like the neighbourhood has finally had enough.

The residents told The Echo they've found rats in the building that houses the estate's bins, running around their back gardens, and even sleeping inside the engines of their cars. 

Yeah, we shuddered too. 

See the neighbourhood take action against the vermin in the video above.
