From top: Ireland under sea in 2050 as imagined for tonight’s show presented ; Gerard Fleming


In a stark message to be delivered tonight, former RTÉ weather presenter Gerard Fleming is set to warn “the sea will come and take them back”.

There is a set of circumstances adding up to such a threat that has every chance of happening before 2050, he says. Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Drogheda and Wexford are also vulnerable, Fleming points out, but Dublin and Cork “are where most of the assets are concentrated”.

Right so.
