A heatwave has officially been declared in Ireland.

It's after temperatures have exceeded 25 degrees for the fifth day in a row, with Moore Park in Cork, recording 28.8 degrees.

Met Éireann's status yellow temperature warning remains in place until Monday.


Forecaster Gerry Murphy expects a number of locations will break the 30 degree mark again today.

"Today is going to be another very hot day across the country. Really, for all parts of the country, temperatures will be up in the high 20's and a few places may break 30 degrees as well. Now yesterday we had the highest ever August temperature recorded in Ireland, that was 31.7 degrees in Carlow. However, only one other place, Moore Park in Cork, got over 30 degrees.."
