RTE's Teresa Mannion breaks the internet following dramatic Storm Desmond weather report

RTE journalist Teresa Mannion is a hot topic on social media today following her live report on RTE News last night.

Teresa did the live report in awful conditions - in gale force winds and with rain pouring down around her.

She reported live from Galway, which is bearing the brunt of all things Storm Desmond.

Teresa is wrapped in raingear and a hat and the camera is swaying in the howling winds as she delivers her report.

She is winning praise across Twitter for the report.

She told how treacherous weather conditions were "here in the west and the north west".

RTE reporter Teresa Mannion: 'I was in a bubble of gale force winds' 

"I cannot repeat the advice often enough from the gardai. Don't make unnecessary journeys, don't take risks on treacherous roads. And don't swim in the sea. Incredibly people have been spotted in the water here in Blackrock in Salthill today and yesterday."

RTE reacted to the lively report - tweeting out a special video with the report less than an hour later.

She appeared on RTE News at 9.30pm for an update.

Although still reporting live in extremely tough conditions, the winds appeared to have died down slightly. She told viewers of how a number of towns in the west of the country are cut off due to the storm.

At the end of the report, she smiled as broadcaster Brian Jennings told her to get in out of the rain and warm up.
