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.

Some are a bit embarrassed about the whole thing...

But it doesn't end there.  Now #Opheila is trending...
