Teresa Mannion immortalised in Salthill mural

Teresa Mannion mural salthill

Veteran RTÉ broadcaster Teresa Mannion has been immortalised through art here in Galway.

Some local artists painted an electric box in Salthill with her portrait and her now famous words from reporting on Storm Desmond two years ago.

In December 2015, as the storm raged, Mrs. Mannion warned people against travelling with her famous quote “Don’t make unnecessary journeys, don’t take risks on treacherous roads.”

The footage of her dramatic warning became an internet sensation and was shared by people across the world.

It was also remixed into one hell of a dance tune on YouTube.

Mrs Mannion paid tribute to the mural on her twitter account.
