It was a particularly busy work day for Joanna Donnelly yesterday as the RTE meteorologist was part of the team keeping the nation informed about Hurricane Ophelia.

And one little girl has let her know just how important her job is with a note of thanks, which Joanna shared on Twitter.

Olivia O'Driscoll from Cork wrote, "Dear Ms Donnelly, thank you so much for warning us all about Hurricane Ophelia and calling a red warning.

"My dad is a fisherman and he is safe.  My Grandad is a fisherman too and he is safe.

"From Olivia O'Driscoll, Schull, West Cork."

Olivia drew some cute pink flowers on her letter too.

Joanna captioned the pic, "My work here is done. I'm off to @dunnesstores for the dinner. Stay safe on the roads. xxx #Aftermath"

It seems Joanna is enjoying a well earned day off in the wake of the storm as she tweeted a pic of her husband Harm Luykx delivering her breakfast in bed.
