Note : The data shown in the table above is the official climate data submitted to Met Eireann (Climate Station No. 456). The temperatures are from calibrated liquid-in-glass thermometers and rainfall is from a standard 5" copper gauge. The temperatures are not calculated/based on a 00-24 hour day. For the minimum temperatures, the month begins at 9 UTC on the last day of the preceding month and ends at 9 UTC on the last day of the month. For the maximum temperatures and rainfall readings, the month is taken as beginning at 9 UTC on the 1st and ending at 9 UTC on the 1st of the next month.
