Met Éireann, Ireland’s weather service, has predicted that the current warm spell will continue for the rest of the week.
On Sunday, temperatures reached almost 69.8 F (21°C) higher than Mediterranean countries like Greece or Tenerife. Yesterday the temperatures ranged from 60.8- 66.2 F (16-19°C). Tuesday is forecast to be a dry, warm and sunny day with temperatures reaching 66.2 F (19°C).
The weather will remain dry and settled through the midweek period, with warm days with good sunny spells. The highest temperatures are expected to be in the west and North West of the country.
Where does the term “the luck of the Irish” come from?
