Viewers really appreciated RTE weather woman Joanna Donnelly's simple tribute to Prince
RTE weather woman Joanna Donnelly's simple tribute to the late, great Prince did not go unnoticed by appreciative fans.
The Met Éireann meteorologist has been making an impact since she recently joined the regular weather presenter roster at RTÉ Weather.
And following Thursday night's RTE One 9 O'Clock news she paid tribute to Prince, whose death had been announced just hours before.
As she gave a rundown on Friday's weather, she said, "No rain... purple or otherwise".
And it went down a treat with viewers.
