Caitríona Perry and Keelin Shanley definitely had their work cut out for them last night as RTÉ experienced some "major technical difficulties," writes Sally Gorman.
If you tuned in to yesterday's RTÉ Six One News you were met with a series of delays and disruption to service as the programme was forced off air twice.
That being said, the girls played a blinder! They kept things under control and remained cool, calm and composed despite the difficult circumstances.
Twitter, however, showed no mercy and viewers were quick to criticise station's gaffe.
#RTE seems to be having a meltdown. Must be all gone for ice creams!— Aoife Dowd (@aoifedowd) May 29, 2018
It wasn't just the news that was affected though, RTÉ Two also took a bit of a tumble.
There was a disruption to transmission of The Simpsons and Neighbours.
Sincere apologies, we're having a bit of technical bother at the moment and will be unable to bring you the concluding part of #TheSimpsons. We hope to resume transmission with #Neighbours as scheduled. Thanks for your patience.— RTÉ2 (@RTE2) May 29, 2018
Even the weather segment didn't get a good run at things and it too was affected by the technical difficulties.
After delivering her update the RTÉ meteorologist had to walk offset as the cameras kept rolling.
We can only imagine there were thousands tuned in to hear the forecast for the rest of the week..which looks set to sunny by the way.
All in all, the situation was handled very smoothly by the team of presenters.
This isn't the station's first tech error though, in fact there have been quite a few memorable ones.
