An Irish schoolboy has become an internet star for having the 'best Irish accent ever' after he was interviewed about the weather.

Ruairi McSorley, from Sperrins near Derry, was asked about the harsh weather by a local TV station.

He replied in a strong Irish accent: "Oh God you wouldn't be long gettin' frostbit."

Ruairi's interview has been viewed across the world with the footage racking up more than 70,000 views on YouTube.

UTV station's reporter Gareth Wilkinson later tweeted: "The 'Frostbit' boy I interviewed in Sperrins is Ruairi McSorley. That's how he talks you couldn't make him up." Since the broadcast, Ruairi, has been enjoying his new-found fame with interviews on various TV stations and says he would like his own TV show.

The UTV clip has now been circulating around the web, racking up more and more views.

One viewer tweeted: "My favourite thing today ... in fact maybe ever. Long live local news reports."

Another added his agreement with Ruairí, claiming: "She's a caul wan, hey sir!!"

Speaking to UTV after his interview went viral Ruairí said: "Oh God it's mad craic altogether. Imagine that!"

Ruairí's rise to fame reminds us of 'Apparently boy Noah Ritter, the five-year-old became an internet sensation after repeatedly using the word 'apparently' during a TV interview with a Pennsylvania news reporter at a county fair.

In the video, a newscaster was seen approaching him on the opening day of the fair in Honesdale and asking him what he thought of a new ride.

Noah said into the microphone: "It was great and apparently I've never been on live television but apparently sometimes I don't watch the news because I'm a kid and apparently every time Grandpa just gives me the remote I have to watch the Powerball."

The reporter pushed him further, asking him again for his view on the ride.

Noah replied: "Well, it was great because apparently you're spinning around and apparently every time you get dizzy, that's all you do is get dizzy."
