IRELAND IS ON red alert, but we Irish like to find the humour in any situation.

While some counties were battening down the hatches, some were taking to Twitter to poke a little fun at Storm Rachel (and Jennifer Aniston).

On the other hand, some were genuinely pretty scared that the world was possibly ending.

Others were wondering what all the fuss is about.
