Met Eireann issues warning of heavy rainfall for 16 counties as good weather eases off

The sun has been around for long enough



Ireland’s summer heat wave has been reaching unexpected levels, with the sun shining down across the country for the past six weeks.

Temperatures have hit highs of 30 degrees, and have consistently been in the high 20’s and low amounts of rain have caused country wide water shortages and hose pipe bans.

But now, it it looks like we are in for some rain, as the National Forecaster has released a weather warning for 16 counties.

“Saturday, showery rain will linger in the north for much of the day,” Met Eireann said in a statement.
