Earlier today.

In Grange, Tullow, Co Carlow…

St Brigid’s National School tweetz:

“Some very ‘persuasive writing’ from 4th class as to why they should play in the sneachta.”

Mmmf.

Also, in fairness.

Let them out for pity’s sake.

Meanwhile…

Meanwhile, the Status Yellow snow/ice warning for the whole country continues until midnight tonight, while a Status Yellow wind warning continues for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry until 8pm tonight.

Caution urged as snow/ice warning in effect (RTÉ)

Carlow Weather tweetz:

A lovely break in weather today with lots of pleasant winter sunshine. Make the most of it as the next round of wet and very windy weather is already lining up out in the Atlantic and will arrive tonight with an awful day ahead tomorrow. Turning much colder tomorrow evening too.

Sigh.

Meanwhile…

Met Éireann has released a “weather advisory” for Ireland tomorrow, from 4am until 4pm. To wit:

Tuesday will be a blustery day with strong winds and very gusty conditions associated with an active front moving eastwards across the country. Generally, winds will be below warning thresholds but damage to some structures and trees, already weakened from the effects of Storm Atiyah, is possible.

Rain and showers will be heavy at times as well, especially in Atlantic coastal counties.

Meanwhile…

In Cork at the weekend…

Exilesconfirmed for Hard Working Class Heroes

What you may need to know.

01. Hop into your red Ferrari with your girl, and cruise into an unending neon night with Exiles‘ super-polished synth-pop reverie.

02. Hailing from Carlow/Kilkenny, the trio takes direct influence from the full spectrum of eighties pop culture, from Hall & Oates, to the Lethal Weapon II soundtrack.

03. Streaming above is the outfit’s debut single, Red Lights, available now, and the leadoff track for their debut E.P. of the same name.

04. Appearing live at Hard Working Class Heroes fest, October 6-8, in Dublin. For more info, go here.

Verdict: Pristine pop from the South-East, via LA in the ’80s. Grin-inducing stuff.
