The fine weather has also seen "great optical displays" in the skies, according to Niall Dollard of www.kilkennyweather.com.
There was a great optical display this evening, a 22 degree halo around the sun & 2 sun dogs on each side. Above the halo I saw a rare circumzenithal arc. First time for me. Sometimes called an upside down rainbow. Images taken near Gowran Co Kilkenny @CarlowWeather @barrabest pic.twitter.com/GzSUSmJArA— Kilkenny Weather (@kilkennyweather) June 25, 2018
