Gerry Murphy
Gerry Murphy is a real wild card. The Monaghan man has worked full time with Met Éireann since 2001. He's into playing GAA and running marathons but is also a huge fan of U2. Hence the glasses and frighteningly accurate Bono impression he did on Ray D'arcy that one time. He took the whole nation by surprise.

Joanna Donnelly
Known as the 'face' of Hurricane Ophelia, Donnelly has only been on our screens for a year. She issued everybody with warnings to stay in their homes during the storm, and probably saved countless lives in doing so. Her husband is also a Met Éireann staff member, so unlike the rest of us who fall back on the weather for small talk, Joanna Donnelly's life revolves around it. A little known fact is that Joanna also set up a charity called Pomegranate with the help of a friend. They help people who are seeking IVF. So as well as looking after everybody during Ophelia, Joanna Donnelly's helping people out with their fertility issues.

Martin King
Edenmore native Martin King is a proper dad. He enjoys flying drones and brought the Sam Maguire Cup to his 2010 wedding as the guest of honour. Martin can do it all - TV or radio. His real name is Martin Boyle, but he was so inspired by Martin Luther King that he used Martin King as his stage name on pirate radio. This isn't even a lie, look it up if you don't believe me.

Jean Byrne
Kerry-woman Jean Byrne initially planned on studying medicine after school, but soon found out that weather is her true passion. She's known as a bit of a style icon on the weather forecast, thanks to her eye-catching wardrobe.
