Warm, dry weather is forecast this week in what could be this summer's last blast.
It follows weeks of weather warnings for rain and thunder.
Some forecasters are predicting the mercury to reach as high as 25 degrees in spots - however Met Eireann is being more conservative saying it will go above 20.
We could be heading to a prolonged dry settled spell of weather as latest charts show high pressure into next week! Back to school as normal some might say 😁 pic.twitter.com/86MPDizCG2

This spell is unlikely to get heatwave classification as temperatures would have to remain high for five consecutive days.
