Was Jean Byrne paying tribute to Bowie on the Six One last night?

Everyone seems to think so.

YOU’D THINK WE’D be used to RTÉ meteorologist Jean Byrne’s legendary get ups by now, but every so often she throws us a curveball.

This ensemble, with its bat-like shoulder pads, captured the nation’s attention on the Six One News last night.

People had a lot of suggestions about who could have been the inspiration for this outfit – from Maleficent…

To Kylo Ren from Star Wars…

To Anjelica Huston in The Witches.

Or, could it be that Jean Byrne is a Bowie fan in mourning? (Ziggy Stardust was fond of a shoulder pad or two.)

Whatever it is you’re doing, Jean, we’re into it. Yaassss.
