Watch: RTE reporter keeps composure despite this foul-mouthed interruption Newsdesk Newsdesk

The state broadcaster has seen a live interview on its Six One news show interrupted by a young man screaming expletives.

Political reporter Martina Fitzgerald was speaking to presenter Brian Dobson from outside Government Buildings when the youngster walked up behind her and screamed 'F**K her right in the p***y'.

The cameras instantly cut back to the studio where a disgruntled Dobson apologised to viewers.

The short clip caused an avalanche of tweets with many social media users praising the political reporter for her composure under pressure.

One user wrote: "Well done Martina.Bad enough when eejits start waving at the camera, but that was way, way out of order."

The phrase shouted by the youth has become a viral sensation after football fans interrupted several live sports broadcasts in the UK.

This is not the first time that Dobson has had to deal with people interrupting broadcasts. Three years ago he found himself in hot-water after calling a group "idiots".
