The sun will come out... the good weather is here to stay
Get the tricolour and go enjoy the day, outside!

WE HAVEN’T HAD to blame anything on the weatherman this week.

Clear skies, mild temperatures and a delightful amount of sunshine have graced our island since last weekend.

And it’s set to continue on this holiday day.


Met Éireann has forecast a dry day with all mist and fog patches already cleared.

“Good sunny intervals will develop in most areas, but cloud may linger well into the afternoon in some parts,” it added, saying the southwest will probably be the dullest area.

Temperatures are expected to be within 8 to 11 degrees Celsius, so still pack some warm clothes.

The weather is expected to remain consistent through tomorrow, the weekend and early next week.

Thanks, St Patrick. First the snakes, and now this.
