Warmest day of the year recorded ahead of scorching weekend

Met Éireann have confirmed that Friday was the hottest day of the year so far, with this year’s record temperature noted in Co Roscommon.

The forecaster said Mount Dillon saw the mercury rise to 27.1 degrees, with the fine weather expected to last well into next week.

A warm night is also on the cards, with temperatures due to stay above 13-16 degrees. Saturday will start off misty in some areas, but will quickly clear, bringing plenty of blue skies and sunshine around the country.

As people flock to the beach, the RNLI are urging members of the public to be careful around water.

While temperatures on land may soar over the coming days, water temperatures will remain low, so swimmers are being reminded to take particular care.
