It was only a matter of time.

RTE reporter Teresa Mannion's weather report from Salthill, Galway went viral on Saturday night thanks to elements of drama usually reserved for Meryl Streep's Oscar-nominated roles.

It was a waiting game as to how and when the internet would respond. And respond they did.

Comedian Andy Quirke made his own version of the infamous weather report at his Dublin home, where he came out with lines such as "If you're going to leave the house, you're going to need a boat" and "The world is ending."

It's not the only response to Teresa's rain-soaked report on RTE 1 last night.

Super Ceili paid tribute with a remix of her report.

Producer Peter Staunton said: "It seemed inevitable that a remix was going to happen, so we took the opportunity to have a bit of fun with it. We're overwhelmed by the reaction to it.

"We knew it would be a well-received novelty, but the speed at which it's 'gone viral' has been incredible.

"I would add that Teresa's performance left us with very little work to do to transform it into a great track."

Others weren't slow about posting memes of Teresa, with her report being super-imposed into Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
