A young Navan man, who recorded a video in his bedroom whilst strumming on a guitar, has proved to be one of the big hits of the new year.

Cathal Mongey succeeded in packing most of the memorable news stories from 2015 into his song, which lasts an impressive 120 seconds.

His entertaining video has now been viewed by over 45,000 people.

Cathal references the expression "It was just banter," acknowledging that it is finally a plausible excuse to use when necessary.

He also references the same-sex marriage referendum, Dublin and Kilkenny's respective All-Ireland wins, Donald Trump's naughty exploits, and the ever-present issue of climate change.

However it's a fellow Internet star that creates the key moment during this video.

"Don't take risks on treacherous roads," sings Cathal, imitating the legendary Teresa Mannion's storm report last month.
