PARTING SHOT

A few years ago, Teresa Mannion stole the show with her storm coverage, but she was upstaged in a rather unusual way when covering Storm Eleanor in Galway on RTÉ’s Six One News this evening.

As she’s describing the effects of the storm, a man walks towards the camera proudly waving an upside-down American flag.

At one stage he appears to realise and tries to flip the flag the right way before it gets caught by the wind and covers his face.

Maybe he shouldn’t have bothered with that unnecessary journey.
