And if you’re planning a trip to the beach, Water Safety Ireland has issued a reminder to stay cautious around the water.
“Temperatures are high this weekend so put safety first at our waterways. Never bring inflatable toys to the beach & always supervise children closely. Swim at lifeguarded waterways between the flags & stay within your depth,” they advised.
The DCSPA has also issued advice for those who have pets to prevent heatstroke.
“It’s early and it’s already very hot. Keep your pets safe. Don’t walk them,” they said. “Make sure they have somewhere to chill in the shade. Plenty of water with ice cube added for them to play with. ”
Dublin Fire Brigade has issued a notice after they were called to fight a gorse fire on Howth Head. They warned all outdoor use of fires, barbecues and other open ignition sources be avoided on forest lands and in other high-risk areas until further notice.
