'#Ophelia trending at 1, followed by #Opehlia at 2 - are we sure we want all schools closed?'
Oh dear. The hurricane/ex hurricane/tropical storm is coming and we're so panicked we've lost the ability to spell.
#Ophelia is unsurprisingly trending at number one in Ireland but the number two trending hashtag is #Opehlia, whoever she is.
And everyone is making the same joke.
Others were oblivious to their mistake. We don't blame them. Sure tis not often we have a hurricane looming.
Oh! It's started! Here comes the rain! #Opehlia— Just Jane (@justjane962) October 16, 2017
Some are a bit embarrassed about the whole thing...
But it doesn't end there. Now #Opheila is trending...
I am now regretting breaking news of #Opheila school closures. No basis now for bedtime exhortations. I am in a parenting status red zone.— Colm Ó Mongáin (@colmomongain) October 15, 2017

Fungi just gusted by the bedroom window wearing Michael Healy-Rae's cap.
This is bad.
