"Move over Aonghus, RTÉ has a new star!"
The last news blooper of 2017 comes courtesy of RTÉ tonight, although it was just a fraction too late to make it into the best news bloopers in the world video.
An RTÉ reporter was caught in quite a PICKle when she went live a little earlier than expected, and was a little preoccupied elsewhere.

In fairness to Karen, people needed a giggle after the grim 'Reeling in the Years' style tribute to 2017.

RTÉ news review 2017 = sorrow after sorrow. @rtenews there were good news stories this year too. Media need to take lead on positivity!
