Carlow's weatherman, Alan O'Reilly tweeted about the high temperatures of today and tomorrow (which is expected to reach 22 degrees) - the perfect weather for a road trip.

Met Eireann also added that tonight will be dry with temperatures not dropping below five degrees.

"Dry and calm with long clear spells, though cloud will build across the west and northwest later.
