The Week in Social - December 11th, 2015

All Hail Teresa Mannion

Above and beyond the call of duty our petite Teresa Mannion battled storm Desmond in one of the most talked about weather reports of the year. While the wind and rain howled around her and almost took her off her feet Teresa continued to deliver a flawless dialogue while suffering the horrific conditions that storm Desmond brought in its course. Her report really showed the true strength of the weather conditions and if anyone was in any doubt this bulletin surely showed that it was a perfect evening to stay safe and indoors if at all possible.

 

Teresa’s heartfelt, in the moment, description of the weather conditions around her went viral overnight and thousands have shared the reporters 90 seconds of gritty determination to get the message across to those tuning in to the weather forecast.  


Of course it sparked the imaginations of the creative online users and parodies were made. Teresa, while being interviewed on Cork’s Red FM told KC she is taking it all in her stride and is enjoying the different mock ups coming on stream. Her favourite was the dance version made by Irish group Super Ceili and is looking forward to having a boogie to it at the Christmas party.
