Heatwave continues! Met Eireann issue extreme heat warning as temperatures to soar up to 28c again at the weekend




Have you ever seen anything like it in Ireland before? Remember 1995’s sunny summer? Remember 1976? Well if you’re old enough to remember both of them, that’s about it – otherwise we’d have to go back around 80 years to match the summer of 2018 so far.

The current spell of hot weather continues unabated, prompting Met Eireann to issue a new weather warning for high temperatures.

The warning affects Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Galway, Leitrim, Roscommon, Clare, Limerick, and Tipperary.

Temperatures of 27-28C are expected today.

Current indications show that the heatwave is likely to continue into next week.
