Ireland is in the grip of a heatwave, temperatures in the high 20s Celsius or even 30C and high humidity. This is about as warm as it ever gets here. After 4 days sitting in the office wondering if the air conditioner is still on I now know that I'm probably going to melt when I get to Darwin in Australia sometime around next November. :-)
On the up side all the fine weather does bring out all the beautiful women from beneath their hats, scarves and duffel coats. A friend of mine from France once told me he was convinced Ireland has a special hideaway for beautiful Irish women and we only let them out during the summer months.
The Met Eireann website tells me it will get cooler for the weekend, typical.
