Ireland today.

This satellite image of Ireland was captured by NASA’s MODIS satellite at midday today. It shows snow cover remains in a few spots across the country, particularly on the mountains of Leinster and Munster and mostly on high ground throughout Connacht and Ulster. There is also some convective activity visible over the Irish Sea but this is unlikely to bring widespread showers activity to the East Coast today as winds are mostly northerly….

Hi-res here

RTÉjr [available on Sky Channel 624,Saorview Channel 7,UPC Channel 600] will air the world premier of a new animation series Nelly and Nora on February 2 at 9:30am.The series follows the stories of two young sisters, Nelly and Nora, who spend their family holidays and weekends in a mobile home camping park by the sea.

Speaking on his idea for the show, creator Gerard O’Rourke said: “This series was inspired by a regular family holiday in Wicklow and is based on our obsession as a nation with the weather.”Gerard noticed that his own two daughters were always playing outside their holiday home, regardless of the weather. While on the other hand, adults tend to allow the weather dictate their every movement.
