An Irish journalist working for CNN has been praised on social media for his work in covering the violence on the US Capitol yesterday.

Kerryman Donie O'Sullivan reported live from the centre of the demonstration on television and on social media.

CNN News Anchor John King praised the UCD-educated journalist, while #Donie was trending across the country last night.

Some commentators on Twitter say Mr O'Sullivan's upbringing in Ireland prepared him for the turmoil in Washington DC.

Meanwhile Dustin The Turkey said he hopes to see the much-loved journalist as the next American Ambassador.

This morning Mr O'Sullivan tweeted that he was "overwhelmed by all the love from Ireland".
