It’s not all bad though, with Met Éireann promising “occasional spells of sunshine” today.

It’ll be more of the same tomorrow: mostly dry with scattered showers and highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees.

On Saturday, Met Éireann says it will be mostly dry with sunny periods and just the occasional shower during the afternoon or evening across northern areas.
