Athlone Predicted To Have Highest Temperatures In The Country
Today is set to be the warmest of the year so far as the heatwave continues.
Temperatures could reach above 31 degrees in parts, with six counties under a status orange weather warning.
The rest of the country has a status yellow alert, both of which run until Friday.
Paul Downes is a forecaster with Met Eireann and says Athlone could be the hottest place in Ireland today.
