Alan O’Reilly, of Carlow Weather, tweetz:

Another great day and the longer range weather charts want to keep us nice and settled into next weekend and beyond!


Carlow Weather (Alan O’Reilly, him off the telly!) tweetz:

A Ryanair flight from Paris to Dublin circled Dublin then went to Belfast, circled there and now heading for England! #StormAli


He addz:

Power outages spreading across the country now. The fine people at ESB Networks will be busy for a few days after #StormAli and then potential for another stormy day Sunday.

Carlow Weather tweetz:

Latest charts for the remains of #Helene are not good news with the path moving back in over Ireland. This is just one run but it’s not a good one with strong gusts and heavy rain Monday night and again Tuesday night. All eyes on the ECMWF update later this morning.

We’re calling it the Alan Parsons O’Reilly Project.

Much-followed Carlow Weather guy Alan O’Reilly (him off the telly!) has broken his drone.

And he’s set up a GoFundMe page to help him replace it.

Alan, who provides his forecasting to the nation for nothing, requires 1450 lids to fly again.

He writes:

“Sadly my old drone hit the rocks and I’m to to replace it so I can continue to share photos from the air…”

‪A nice morning over the Electric Picnic site in Stradbally this morning as my photo shows and the weather looks ok for tomorrow and Saturday but latest charts show some heavier rain possible Sunday. More updates later. #EP2018 ‬
