AFTER THE HIGHS of the heatwaves earlier this week, the weather in Ireland has turned decidedly… shite. We’re talking wind, rain and grey clouds. Typical Ireland, in other words.

This morning, TV3′s resident weatherman Deric Hartigan was standing out in the lashing rain delivering a weather forecast when the weather got the best of him.

It was all going fine at first.

Until the wind completely wrecked his umbrella causing him to quite literally blow away.

The presenters in studio were absolutely creasing themselves with laughter as Deric tried to regain his composure and fix his bockety brolly.

Fortunately Deric has been able to see the funny side…

Career highlight indeed.
