WATCH: Two years ago today, Teresa Mannion went viral

The dramatic weather report caused a stir

Two years ago today, December 5, 2015, Teresa Mannion delivered perhaps the most famous RTE weather report of all time. 

At that time, Storm Desmond was battering the west of Ireland as Teresa reported from Galway. 

Ireland was hit with a month's worth of rain in a 36-hour period as large areas of farmland and road networks were left under water.
