Coldest July in 27 years
JULY was the coldest month in 27 years in County Wexford, unsurprisingly, with temperatures hovering in the low to mid teens. 1988 was the last summer when it was so cold, according to Met Eireann who described the month as 'cold, wet and windy everywhere'.
Monthly air temperatures were 1 degree lower than the long-term average in most areas. The majority of minimums were between the July 24 and July 28, with the month's lowest temperature reported on May 24 (3.1 degrees). Two stations reported ground frost, while all monthly rainfall stations had above average.
